Epson Japan have announced a new color version of their Endeavor Na01 mini netbook. The Na01, which first launched back in November, is now available in both white and black, rather than merely the original black. Specifications remain unchanged from the black Endeavor Na01 mini, meaning Intel's N270 1.6GHz Atom processor, 945GSE graphics chipset and a 10.2-inch LCD running at 1024 x 600 resolution.
