HP announced three new netbooks in the Mini line today: The 210 (consumer), 5102 (business) and 2102 (both?). They're pretty standard next-gen netbooks, except for the 5102's odd touchscreen option.
Those looking for new Windows 7 hardware might want to head to Best Buy tomorrow—according to our source, they're set to debut an HP package with a desktop, monitor, laptop, netbook, and router, ridiculously priced at $1200.
It's safe to say we've hit the third generation of netbooks. They're nice now. The HP Mini 5105 strikes at Asus Eee Seashell's fancily contoured plastic with aluminum and magnesium. Oh yeah, and 95-percent chiclet keyboard that feels fantastic.
HP revealed a couple of new 10.1" screened netbooks for its Mini line. They'll be offered in both Windows and Linux versions, and one model, the 110, even has an optional graphics accelerator which HP claims can produce seamless 1080p playback.
Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney confirmed that Verizon will begin selling 3G-enabled netbooks by June, a statement no doubt encouraged by the leak of a possible Verizon sales sheet featuring an HP Mini netbook.
