Blaze launches £99 Chie netbook in UK

January 5, 2010 at 7:59 am

Blaze Chie netbookBlaze Europe has launched a new model in its Chie range of netbooks. The Chie 006 sports a 7-inch (800 x 480) display and is powered by a 400MHz VIA VT8500 processor. It has an attractive design that reminds me of the Asus Eee PC Seashell series.

It comes with 128MB RAM, 2GB flash drive and Windows CE. Storage will be supplemented by a SD card slot capable of supporting an extra 16GB. It comes with Wi-Fi (b/g), two USB ports and an 1800mAh battery capable of a 4-hour runtime. Whilst the specs may not be cutting edge, this can all be yours for £99.

If you think you’ve seen the Chie 006 before, that’s because you have. This particular design came out in China in October. Blaze seem to have imported it straight over from the East, hence no Chie branding. Still you probably wouldn’t save too much by importing it yourself and then there are the taxes to pay on top!

Chie 006 Technical Specifications:

• Processor: VIA VT8500 (ARM926EJ-S)
• Display: 7″ TFT High Clear Digital Screen 800*480
• Internal memory: 128MB DDRII / 2GB Nand Flash (Up to 256MB – Optional)

• Connectivity: WIFI RIEEE 802.11 b/g
• Connections: USB 2.0 x 2 to support external memory and/or mouse
• Card Reader: MMC/SD CARD slot supporting 128MB-16GB
• Speakers: Hi-fi Stereo Speakers (Built-in)
• Audio: Dimensional Sound Earphone Output x1, Dimensional Sound Microphone Input x1
• Keyboard: Qwerty – Standard 80 keys – UK
• Mouse Pad: 2.2″ mouse pad – Sensitive Touchpad
• Battery: 7.4v 1800Mha built-in Lithium battery
• Battery Life: 4 Hours

    Would be perfect if there were any way of receiving or sending emails. The adverts quote email access but there is no email software embedded or any facility for adding it. I would love to be found wrong about this!

    I’m writing this from my new Chie – of course it supports email as described in literature.
    I’ve been able to access my hotmail account via the browser ( & it worked fine including reading an attachment on one email. I believe you can use yahoo too, but not your business email.

    Can anyone help. Bought a chie netbook for my sons 13th birthday yesterday but can’t get it to connect to internet. Have tried through the wi-fi, no good, can’t connect through a cable cause no socket on netbook to fit it. Also tried to connect a portable disk drive and netbook freezes thought maybe i needed to install disk for wireless. Oh if i switch to working off line can get google up on screen but can’t go any further.

    There is no way I can get my netbook to operate. When I charge it it says “system initialing—please waiting”. No matter how long I wait nothing happens. I e-mailed you on 29/3/11 asking for help but received no reply. I can not get any local expert to get it going so I must now put it in the bin and try for something else. Please reply as neither of the e-mail addresses I have seem to be active.

    Been given a Chie006 wince as it has stopped working properly, i thought i would be able to delete the o/s and put linux on, but there doesn’t seem to be a way of doing it or Even get into the bios to change the date or time (as it’s stuck in 2009), has anyone got any ideas?.

    Or is this netbook just a quick moneymaking con that when it breaks it’s of No value to repair. :-/

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads
    very fast for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!

    If embarking on a homemade raw food diet for your pet (sometimes referred
    to as BARF), thoroughly research the area first
    as nutritional balance is essential. Cayenne, a natural phytonutrient
    derived from capsicum, helps support circulation. Green superfoods, for example, are often some of the best when it comes to your health.

    First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Appreciate it!

    Dubai Overnight Desert Safari The people or visitors who came to visit Rajasthan hardly remains
    away from the excitement of camel riding. It gives the visitors two options to tour around Dubai, the first one would be explore the Old
    Dubai with Dhow Dinner Cruise at Creek and the other one is to tour around New Dubai with Dhow Dinner Cruise in Dubai Marina which is the recently developed Canal city of
    Dubai which is also man-made. And where Kenya was always the quintessential home of the
    safari. All of the actual amazing sounds, smells and
    sights of the land can end up being enjoyed and experienced
    if you take African safari excursions. Meanwhile, if you’re regularly frustrated
    by endlessly annoying ads that appear when you’re online, there
    are ways in which these can be avoided. ” If you’re using another Linux distribution, look under the “Programs” or “System -> Administration” menus for the software installation tool.
    The animals draw in the lions leopards and cheetahs in huge numbers and Offbeat guests are ideally placed to take advantage of the
    sights. When Private browsing is enabled, Safari won’t save pages
    to the history list.

    I have noticed that wise real estate agents everywhere you go are warming up to FSBO Promoting. They are seeing that it’s not only placing a sign post in the front area. It’s really about building connections with these sellers who at some point will become purchasers. So, after you give your time and energy to encouraging these vendors go it alone — the “Law of Reciprocity” kicks in. Great blog post.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I originate a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year older daughter and said “You can find out the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She located the shell to her ear and screamed. In attendance was a hermit crab in the interior and it pinched her ear. She never wishes to get back! LoL I get this is wholly rotten subject except I had to know someone!
