Two netbooks have passed through the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) overnight. The first is a 9-inch Lenovo netbook with built-in 3G card. We heard rumours last week that a 3G-enabled S10 was being planned, but this is the first we’ve heard of a 3G-enabled Lenovo S9. The card is compatible with AT&T which could suggest that AT&T may start to offer this netbook on a subsidised data contract.
The second is the 10-inch LG X110, which has been available in Europe for some time now. The news is not surprising as we already know that both the X110 and X120 netbooks are due to hit the US by July. The specifications remain the same with the X110 having a 10-inch (1024 x 600) display powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive. It is believed that the X110’s unsubsidised price will be around $400.
