While it hasn’t been officially announced just yet, a the X140 has been photographed and a number of it’s details reveled.
The X140 has a 10-inch LCD with a
1024 x 600 pixel “HD” resolution (1,366 x 768), along with the new and now common Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz N475 1.83GHz. The keyboard looks nice and is of a chiclet / island style. Other specifications include a 160GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, a 6-cell battery, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and a SIM card slot, which probably means the X140 will have optional 3G.
As it hasn’t been officially released just yet these specifications could still change later on.
Unfortunately no pricing or release date are currently known for the LG X140, but we will be sure to keep you updated.
Update: March 26th. The LG X140 has just passed through the FCC revealing the true specifications of this impressive netbook. Rather that featuring the N450 CPU, it appears to use the faster Intel Atom N470 1.83GHz processor, along with 1 or 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive.
A 9-cell battery if also listed, meaning the X140 should have very impressive battery life, and an “HD” display which should mean it’s resolution is 1366 x 720 or higher.
Still no pricing or release date information just yet, but they normally appear very soon after going through the FCC, so it should only be a month or two max I hope.
Update, July 26th: The LG X140 has now shown up in Asia and the middle easy for the US equivalent of $500. Still no word on a US or European release. But we do hope to see it as it looks like an impressive little netbook with some higher specifications than an average netbook. We have also learnt that it weighs 1.3kg, measures 264 x 189 x 32mm, and features a 9 hour 6-cell battery.
