High-resolution HP Mini 2140 to now launch on April Fools?

HP Mini 2140The high resolution (1366 x 768) version of the 10.1-inch HP Mini 2140 will now launch tomorrow (April 1) according to Crunchgear. They obtained this information from a HP representative. Forgive me if I’m a bit cynical but just last week we heard a similar HP rep suggesting that the HD Mini 2140 will launch on April 6.

The upgrade is believed to cost $25 which is cheaper than that being charged by Dell ($35) for a similar upgrade on the Dell Mini 10. Maybe, HP has decided to bring the launch forward following Dells announcement? Dell will not be shipping its 1366 x 768 resolution Mini 10 for another fortnight, so maybe HP are trying to be first to the market. Either way, we should find out for sure tomorrow.

    APRIL FOOLS! Now I wonder if the thing will even be launched on the sixth, or if that news came from a similarly uninformed source.

    Indeed, April1 has come and gone. Given that the April 6 date also came from a HP rep, I don’t have much confidence of it appearing on that date either!
