Toshiba is no stranger to compact notebooks – its long-standing Libretto series is evidence of that – but the company has waited a while before unveiling a budget netbook. Now the first details of such a device are emerging, the NB105, based as usual on Intel’s single-core N270 1.6GHz Atom processor. Update: It’s not coming to the US; details after the cut.
Details are scant, but the netbook is believed to have an 8.9-inch, 1024 x 600 display, 1GB of RAM and a 120GB hard-drive. Connectivity comprises WiFi, wired ethernet and three USB pots; there’s also an SD card slot, but no sign of Bluetooth or an integrated 3G WWAN option.
OS is suggested as Windows XP, and there’s a webcam of unknown resolution in the screen bezel. No price or availability details as of yet, but I would expect to see it in stores by the end of the year.
Update: Toshiba have been in touch to clarify that the NB105 is intended only for Latin America, with no US market release planned.
