HP to intro Mini 2150

According to a Friday report, HP will soon launch more model to add to its Mini family of netbooks. Most recently, the computer maker launched the Mini 2140 at CES, which replaces the Mini 2100 and brings with it an Intel Atom chip instead of a VIA C7-M as well as bumps up the screen size to 10.1 inches from 8.9. The report claims a Mini-note 2150 is the next model due for release, adding integrated 3G data network access to the specs.

The company will also reportedly release a new 11.6-inch Mini in the second quarter of this year along with an even bigger 13.3-inch model in June. The new notebooks are expected to use Intel's Atom Z-series processors to keep costs down. As with the current Mini-notes, the new products will be manufactured by Taiwanese PC maker Inventec.

While the Mini 2140 is due out in late January or early February and priced at $499 for base models, the 2150 will reportedly launch this June for an unknown price.
