Dell Mini 10 gets GPS; Mini 10v gets N280 option

June 26, 2009 at 8:41 pm

Dell Mini 10 GPSDell has got round to adding GPS to its Mini 10 series of netbooks. Strangely there doesn’t appear to be an option on the configuration page, so I imagine that all Mini 10’s come with the GPS upgrade. Although this could be a mistake on Dell’s part and an option on the configuration page may appear soon.

The Dell Mini 10v has also got a new upgrade option for the processor. You can now select a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU for an extra $25 over the standard 1.6GHz N270 Atom. We reported a few days ago that the Mini 10v has a display resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels in Japan, however it appears that a few users in the UK also have this resolution, despite the UK Dell site still listing the resolution as 1024 x 576.

Update: We did speculate that the GPS option may be an error and it looks like it was. The GPS listing has now been removed from the Dell site. Thanks Houston Brown!

    I just got off teh phone with DELL sales and there is NO GPS in the mini 10. They did indead have it on there web site but took it down shortly after they posted it. Not sure why, they did not offer me an explanation. I am sure there will be some refunds going on. I did not order one as I am going to wait for the GPS. DELL, they are loosing my confidence in them, but that is a story for another time.

    Thanks for the confirmation Houston Brown.

    I did find it a bit strange. When clicking on the GPS Mini 10, the GPS part wasn’t listed on the spec bit on the right-hand side. Let’s hope the upgrade is planned soon.
