Exactly a month ago today, we reported on a rumour that Fujitsu was about to launch an update to its 8.9-inch M1010 netbook. It looks like it was true as Fujitsu Siemens has today announced a new 10.1-inch netbook called the LOOX M. The LOOX M definitely looks attractive and appears to have an incomplete infinity symbol on the lid (the same as the artist impression in our previous report).
The specifications, however, do nothing to distinguish from the norm. Under the hood you will find a 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU and 945GSE Intel chipset. It will also come with 1GB RAM and 160GB of storage. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, three USB 2.0 sockets, 1.3MP webcam and a multi-card reader. The LOOX M is retailing now for 59,800 Yen ($610, €470, £420) and comes in red, black and white colours.
