Gigabyte 10-inch netbooks

At the CeBit show in Germany at the start of March, Taiwan's Gigabyte said it would show off three new 10-inch netbooks, including the M1028, M1024 and M1022. Little is known about the netbooks, other than that all have a 10-inch screen and that the M1028 is the only one that is sure to sport a rotating touchscreen display, allowing it to be used as a tablet PC, not unlike the company's M912 convertible netbook introduced last year.

The M1028 will be powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 chip on a 945GSE mainboard, while the M1022 will run on the 1.66GHz Atom N280. The M1024 is expected to be a lightweight and thinner version of the M1028. Whether the latter two will have a rotating display is still not confirmed.

The netbooks are expected to go on sale in the second quarter of 2009, though no pricing information is yet known. [via DigiTimes]
