T-Mobile to offer Dell Mini 10 Netbook for $200

T-Mobile have announced that they are offering the Dell Mini 10 netbook with a built in T-Mobile compatible 3G service.

The netbook is going on sale today for $199.99 on a 24 month contract in various select areas in the US which includes Chicago, Dallas, Miami and Los Angeles. It will also be available through the website and through T-Mobile’s sales number.

The Dell Mini 10 appears to be slightly modified from the standard ones available on the Dell website in that it runs an Intel Atom N450 processor that is clocked at 1.66GHz. The battery has six cells and can store 56WHr of energy allowing for up to 8 hours of usage on a single charge which we assume was tested with all features switched off such as Wireless as well as a fairly dim screen. Either way you should at least get 6 hours from a single charge. [Read more…]

Intel Atom Dual Core for Netbooks a Possibility

Netbooks often use Intel Atom processors inside that traditionally come in a single core layout. Desktop versions of Intel Atom processors also exist but there are generally two options with those processors allowing you to choose from either a single or dual core. We are now hearing that netbooks might be getting dual core options in the near future.

We are hearing that the new dual core Atom CPU’s will be called the Intel Atom N500 and be specifically designed for netbooks in that they are efficient in what power they need to draw.

Before you get all excited though, adding a second core to an Intel Atom processor isn’t going to yield much difference due to the fact that Intel have designed the Atom processors to be efficient, low powered and a step or two down from the more powerful CPU’s we see in desktop computers.
