ECS aims at Eee with G10IL

Computer builder ECS is joining the competition against ASUS' popular Eee PC, reports say. The former is said to be developing the G10IL, a subnotebook system with mostly unknown specifications, including exact size, storage and processing power. It does however have a webcam and three USB 2.0 ports, along with an Ethernet connection and a 56K modem. Optical storage is omitted; Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth may be present, but the company has not said as much.

The notebook's most prominent feature though may be the inclusion of an HSDPA receiver, capable of speeds up to 7.2Mbps on compatible cellular networks. No exact prices or release dates have been announced, but in spite of this, the system is expected to be priced under $500. [via Pocket-lint]
