ECS G10IL netbook coming to the US, fights MSI Wind

updated 05:25 pm EDT, Wed July 9, 2008

ECS G10IL netbook

Taiwan-based ECS is preparing to bring its netbook to the US market to compete with the likes of the ASUS Eee PC range and MSI's Wind netbooks. Unlike its other products, the G10IL will be the company's first netbook designed for business use exclusively instead of education. Only a 10.2-inch version of the G10IL will likely make it to the US market, also bringing with it optional and unique to the segment 3G support via the HSUPA and HSPDA mobile broadband networks, as well as EDGE.

The netbook will be renamed by the time it comes to the US, and will be offered with an 8GB SSD drive preloaded with Linpus Lite 9.4 Linux or with an 80GB HD drive with Windows XP. Other specs include an Intel Atom processor, 1 or 2GB of RAM, as well as a six-cell battery good for five hours.

The netbook will also be sold without mobile broadband to keep prices down, while 3G-capable models would likely be bundled with connection cards from data network carriers, said ECS vice president of sales Henry Kwan.

Whatever it will be named, a version of the ECS G10IL will be available for sale in white only this September, starting at $399. [via LAPTOP]
