Dell Launches Mini 12 Netbook In Japan

Dell launched their latest netbook offering the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 in Japan earlier this week. The new Mini 12 is approximately 0.92-inches thick, weighs just 2.7lbs and features a 12" screen, meaning its only slightly thicker than the Air.

The Mini 12 has a 12.1-inch 1280 x 800 WXGA display promising wider viewing angles and good brightness. Other features of the system include 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a built-in webcam, 1GB of RAM, 60GB or 80GB HDD (on the Japanese model) and Windows Vista for the OS. Dell says battery life is up to 3 hours and 32 minutes. Dell's Japanese site lists the CPU in the machine as the Intel Atom Z520

According to Dell the Inspiron 12 will be around $600 and won't be available in the U.S. until mid- November.

APC Magazine has what the are calling the "WORLD FIRST review of Inspiron Mini 12: Dell’s super-slim netbook!" In their reports they are putting the price tag at $999. Personally I don't see Dell setting the price that high. But the review is worth reading and it features some pretty good photos.
