LG X300 super thin ultraportable in video hands-on

March 24, 2010 at 5:11 pm

LG X300The LG X300 is one of the thinnest 11.6-inch ultraportable’s around. It measures just 17.5mm in thickness and weighs only 970g. Engadget has managed to get some hands-on time with the X300 and felt that it was more akin to holding an e-reader rather than a laptop.

Build quality seems solid, despite the plastic construction. The screen was bright although a bit too glossy. The keyboard has no flex, but there are concerns over the touchpad and the click mechanism, despite it being quite large overall.

It is expected to hit some regions by the end of the month (not including Europe or the US) although pricing still remains a mystery (we can guarantee it won’t be cheap though!) Check out the hands-on video after the cut. Read more

LG X30 XNote: 11.6-inch super-slim netbook outed

December 13, 2009 at 12:40 am

LG X30 XNoteLG is a company that has released some solid netbooks in the X110, X120 and X130 but hasn’t pushed them aggressively in key markets unlike other manufacturers.

It will come with an unspecified Intel Atom processor paired with GMA 500 graphics. Other features include a chiclet keyboard, multi-touch gesture touchpad, Wi-Fi (draft-N), a SSD drive, card reader and two USB ports. It will also come with optional Bluetooth 2.1 and 1.3MP webcam. All of the ports are located at the back that keeps its sleek lines (the sides unusually have no ports whatsoever). There’s little other information, but hopefully we’ll hear something official on the LG X30 soon. Check out some pics after the cut. Read more

Samsung & LG to see strong netbook growth in 2010

August 14, 2009 at 3:23 pm

LG netbookBoth Samsung & LG will see strong netbook volume growth during 2010 according to industry sources. Shipments are forecast to reach around seven million units, this compares to the 12 – 15 million units that is projected for Acer, one of the leading netbook manufacturers.

Part of this growth is expected to come from the companies close ties with telecom operators. Both companies already manufacture their own handsets as well as netbooks. Bundling subsidised netbooks with data contracts is already big business, but the choice of devices offered is expected to grow.
