BenQ announced their Joybook Lite U102 netbook today for release. This new netbook is really thin and compact, measuring in at under an inch thick and weighing only 2.3-pounds, making this an easy device to tote.
Specs include an Intel 1.6GHz Atom processor, Wi-Fi, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 3G access and a 10.1-inch LED-backlit screen with a 1,024 x 600 resolution. A shortcut key makes it easy to switch between Wi-Fi and 3G.
You have the option of either a three-cell or six-cell battery and there’s also the option of adding Bluetooth 2.1. A 1.3-megapixel webcam is also included along with Windows XP Home Edition. You can get the Joybook Lite U102 in Taiwan, Thailand and China right now and there’s currently no information on expanding its availability.
