Whilst Toshiba already sells the NB100 netbook in Europe and Latin America, it has yet to enter the US market. This may be about to change however, according to a Toshiba representative at Tuesday’s XChange Solution Provider ‘09 conference.
Toshiba is looking to enter the US netbook market with a model with as-yet unknown specifications. The manufacturer is looking to enter around the middle of the market’s range. “You know us: We won’t be the least expensive out there and we won’t be the most expensive,” said Patrick Mani of Toshiba.
Toshiba’s existing netbook, the NB100, is based on a 1.6Ghz Intel Atom processor, offers an 8.9-inch (1024 x 600) screen and is available with either Windows XP Home Edition or Ubuntu Linux. It also comes with 1GB of RAM, a 120Gb hard drive, a 0.3 MP camera and a 3.5 hour battery. No release date has been announced.
