LG netbook PC with embedded 3G

LG Electronics will launch in October a netbook-class laptop PC based on Intel's Atom processor that also includes 3G wireless, it said at the IFA show in Berlin.

The X110 will include an HSPA (High-Speed Packet Access) cellular data modem that should be compatible with the newer 3G (third-generation) networks now being rolled out by most major carriers around the world. HSPA is typically capable of download speeds of several megabits per second and the latest versions of the evolving technology also offer megabit per second uploads.

In addition to 3G, the machine also supports 802.11b/g wireless LAN and has a wired Ethernet connector.

The X110 is based around the same 1.6GHz Atom processor that many of its competing devices also use and has a 10-inch WSVGA resolution (1,024 pixels by 600 pixels) screen that, if it wasn't for the 3G, would place it very close to competing netbook PCs.

LG has decided to go for a conventional hard-disk drive in the X110 and will offer models with either 80 GB or 120 GB of capacity. Some netbooks use faster solid-state disks based on flash memory chips but they typically offer much lower capacity.

It runs the Windows XP Home operating system.

LG didn't announce the price.
