HP Mini 210 spotted; launches in February 2010?

December 11, 2009 at 8:22 am

HP MiniReferences to the HP Mini 210 netbook have been unearthed before, albeit with little detail. The same model has now been spotted on the official HP support site. Before you get too excited though, there’s still no detail in terms of hardware specifications. There is no doubt that this model is on the horizon and I’ve seen it listed on numerous e-tailers (with no hardware specs unfortunately).

One particular site suggests a release date of February 1st 2010. This puts it in the frame to be HP’s Pineview Atom-powered netbook. However, debating what else the HP Mini 210 could feature is just guess work right now. Hopefully, we’ll hear more at CES 2010 in early January. We’ve attached the HP Mini 210 screen grabs listed on HP after the jump.

HP normally releases its netbooks under the Compaq brand in Europe, which is why there are two listings per model.
