Packard Bell is set to release a new 10.1-inch netbook called the dot S2. This model will be powered by Intel’s upcoming N450 Pineview Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD and Windows 7. Given the Windows 7 support it’s strange why Packard Bell hasn’t opted for a higher capacity 250GB HDD.
Other features include a multi-touch touchpad, Wi-Fi, webcam and Dolby Sound. The Packard Bell dot S2 will be available in two colours, Night-sky Black and Cherry Red when it launches early next year. It’s price is expected to fall between €250 to €300.
This model was announced at an Italian press event along with other netbooks. This includes the Packard Bell Butterfly Touch that we’ve touched on before, along with a new 11.6-inch Packard Bell XS Butterfly.
The XS Butterfly appears to be similar to the Acer Aspire 1810TZ and is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core Intel SU4100 processor, 2GB RAM and a 250GB HDD. This comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, a 0.3MP webcam, Bluetooth and a 6-cell battery. It is expected to cost around €530 on release.
