We published this morning about the entrance of Toshiba in the US netbook market with the Mini NB205: the mini NB205-N310 will retail for $399 and the mini NB205-N210 for $349, both units will be available on June 23. Main features include a 10.1 inch widescreen LED display, a full QWERTY rased-tile keyboard with a rather large touchpad (laptop sized) an Intel Atom N280 processor (1.66 ghz) and a 160 GB hard drive equipped with an Impact Sensor to prevent bumps and a 6-cell battery with a quite good battery life (9 hours on the paper, we’ll see).
The mini NB205-N310 comes in a metallic textured finish and will be available in four colors – Sable Brown, Frost White, Indigo Blue and Posh Pink. The mini NB205-N210 features a Fusion Finish in Black Onyx cover and a flat keyboard with Black Matte finish. Full specifications after the jump.
