LG plans to ship its 10-inch netbook models, the X110 and X120, to the US this Summer. The X110 model had already launched in most territories last Winter and now the company is preparing to bring it to the US. Whilst no firm date has been given, it hopes to release the X110 before July. It is believed that the X110’s unsubsidised price will be around $400. LG’s X120 which debuted at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month is also scheduled to launch in the US this summer, whilst hitting European markets later this month.
The X110 was LG’s first foray into the netbook market and bears a strong resemblance to the well-established MSI Wind U100, this time with an HSDPA 3G modem added. It has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, a 10 inch (1024 x 600) screen, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. The LG-X120 netbook is powered by an Intel Atom 1.6Ghz CPU and includes integrated HSDPA, a 10.1″ WSVGA screen and 1.3 megapixel webcam.
