Is this be too good to be true? A slide of Dell’s upcoming roadmap for netbooks has leaked, so detailed that it even includes some of the specs of an unannounced Dell Mini 11. A Dell Mini 11 netbook sounds about right in the long term, but it seems Dell’s plans for the short term will be on the Mini 10. The current Dell Inspiron Mini 10 model will be getting upgrade options for Vista, a 3G modem, and potentially a 1.86GHz Atom on April 17th.
Here comes another very glossy Inspiron Mini from Dell. The Mini 10 is a 10-inch deal powered by an Intel Atom Z530 processor running at 1.6GHz, with a glass screen, a multi-touch trackpad with gesture support, built-in GPS, 802.11n Wi-Fi, mobile broadband and even an integrated TV tuner.
That glossy 10-inch display can show 720p high-definition content, and the screen itself is a widescreen 16:9 model. An edge-to-edge keyboard helps take advantage of what little typing space is available on a laptop this size, so all being well the Mini 10 won’t be out of the question for speedy typists!
Dell didn’t release much other details at its press conference, but we’d expect Windows Vista or Windows XP on board to be likely, a couple of gigabytes of RAM and a solid-state disk option, just like the Dell Inspiron Mini 9. No prices or availability details yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
