Dell Mini 10 TV Tuner
Dell this morning quietly expanded the options for the Inspiron Mini 10 and 10v to include both its first TV tuner and a pair of new color options. The company's promised USB digital TV tuner should be available today and, in North American form, will supply owners of the 10-inch netbooks with free over-the-air ATSC HD broadcasts. It should cost $50 in the build-to-order process for any Inspiron Mini 10 model.
The lid color changes primarily involve the conversion of Cherry Red into (Product) RED. While the color is the same, the move will donate $5 to the Bono-backed anti-AIDS charity for the $40 cost of veering away from the default black lid. A second option, Passion Purple, is also new and costs the same amount. Both of the color choices are available immediately. [via Engadget]
