Taiwanese manufacturer, Kinpo Electronics, has introduced [PDF] a new 11.6-inch netbook called the N3. The N3 differs from most other netbooks as it is powered by a VIA Nano processor and also has an integrated 3G/WiMAX chipset. The N3 netbook is aimed for the Chinese market and comes with the Chinese 3G standard called TD-SCDMA (Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access).
The Kinpo N3 sports an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display, up to 2GB of RAM, a variety of storage options (HDD/SDD) and a choice of Windows XP or Vista Home Basic. Other features include a 1.3MP webcam and Wi-Fi (b/g). The N3 will be powered by either a 1.2GHz or 1.3 GHz VIA Nano processor, dependent on the configuration.
The Kinpo N3 measures just 27mm thick (quite thin for an 11.6-inch device) and weighs 1.3kg. Battery life is expected to last around the three hour mark. Details on availability or price were not given, although it’s unlikely we’ll see a release outside of China.
