The ‘HD’ resolution HP Mini 2140 will release on April 6 in the US according to Digiffiti. This new version will come with a high-resolution (1366 x 768) 10.1-inch LED backlit screen which is a big improvement over the current 1024 x 576 resolution display found on the current Mini 2140.
It will apparently cost only an extra $25 from the current Mini 2140. This price seems too good to be true, after all, when choosing between the two versions, who would opt for the original 2140 given how small the price difference is? However this price has been verified from several sources so it’s great news for consumers if true!
So it appears that in just under two weeks we should finally start to see the HD Mini 2140 appear in retail channels. There is some concern that could the higher resolution mean that the text may be too tiny to read comfortably on the 10-inch screen? Personally, I think it should be easier to read than on the 8.9-inch (1280 x 768) display of the HP Mini 2133. We can’t wait to see one for ourselves to find out.
