BenQ to enter netbook field with Joybook Lite

updated 01:35 pm EDT, Fri September 12, 2008

BenQ Joybook Lite

BenQ has decided to join the netbook market, according to reports. The company is said to be working on two such systems, both under the Joybook Lite moniker, with an 8.9-inch model due in October and a widescreen, 10.2-inch edition shipping in November. The systems should be equipped with Windows XP and Intel Atom processors, as well as built-in 3G connectivity. Pricing should be equivalent to $468 US, though this is based off of a domestic Taiwanese figure.

A separate report claims to have specifications for the 10.2-inch variant, identifying it has having a 1.6GHz Atom, along with 1GB of RAM, a 1024x600 display, and an unknown size of 5400rpm hard drive. Buyers may have the option of either Windows XP or Linux, and access to hardware such as Bluetooth, a webcam, a card reader and three USB ports.
