LG to launch 3G netbook

LG is promising its customers a 10-inch netbook that includes built-in access to HSPA-based 3G data networks, calling it the X110 MOMO (for More Mobile) and listing it on its website. A variant of the regular X110 and its Korean equivalent the Xnote Mini, the MOMO includes the same 1.6GHz Atom chip, 512MB of memory upgradeable to 1GB, a 1.3-megapixel webcam and optional Bluetooth module. Hard drive capacity is more customizable and will include an 80GB, 120GB or 160GB hard disk drive.

A 4-in-1 memory card reader will be built into the netbook, and Windows Vista Home Basic will be preloaded rather than XP or Linux. An Ethernet jack and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi will act as connections to the Internet and networks. The X110 MOMO will be available in white, black or pink and LG claims that with the standard 3-cell battery (a 6-cell battery is optional), it will tip the scales at 2.6lbs. The keyboard of the X110 MOMO is allegedly large enough for comfortable typing and touts a full-sized Shift key.

No other information has been released by LG, including which network carrier, if any, the hardware manufacturer will team up with to offer the subscription to 3G data networks. Pricing is expected to range between $500 and $600. [via Wired]
