Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Leak
The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 shown at CES will be more flexible than originally suggested, a leaked presentation slide on Photobucket reportedly shows. The 10-inch netbook now appears to have options equal to and above the Mini 12 with the same choices of 1.33GHz and 1.6GHz Atom processors but with both a conventional 1024x576 LCD and a Dell's previously-mentioned HD display, which is now believed to output at 1366x768. Storage should also be much higher with a minimum 120GB hard drive versus the 80GB maximum of the Mini 12.
The system is already expected to be Dell's most advanced netbook with an edge-to-edge keyboard and a multi-touch trackpad, and should come with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi as well as options for internal 3G and GPS. The stock system is said to have at least 1GB of memory and a 1.3-megapixel webcam along with a 3-cell battery that should still manage about 3-4 hours of battery life; a 6-cell pack may boost it to 6-8. New lid colors will help customize the system and should include new options like Gecko Green and an unknown Picasso theme.
A release date and other launch details for the Mini 10 aren't mentioned in the slide, though the system is widely anticipated for the earlier part of the year. [via Engadget]
