Toshiba NB200 netbook launched

Toshiba has added a new netbook to their range, the NB200. The NB200 will now replace its older model, NB100. Specifications wise, it does NOT sports anything worth taking note of though.

  • 1.6GHz N270/1.66GHz N280 Intel Atom processor
  • Intel 945GSE graphics
  • 160GB hard drive
  • built in WiFi, Bluetooth
  • 3G

It will go on sale in the UK in May for £319 ($464).

Here is its press release:

Toshiba Computer Systems today
announced a new addition to its mini-notebook range with the launch
of the new Mini NB200 – a portable, highly stylish 10.1” laptop
perfectly designed to fit the modern digital lifestyle.
The Mini NB200 is the perfect device for consumers looking for a
stylish and reliable PC. A selection of models are available, with
consumers able to take their pick from a 1.6GHz Intel® Atom®
Processor N270, or the new, more powerful Intel® N280 Atom®
Processor, offering a clock speed of 1.66GHz. Both models also
feature the Intel® 945GSE graphics chipset, and offer more than
enough power for browsing the internet, emailing, running basic PC
applications and enjoying digital media – currently the four most
popular uses for mini notebooks.
A Truly Modern Design
With Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition as standard, the Mini
NB200 offers a new ultra thin platform with a striking new design,
with a unique textured cover to appeal to the most style-conscious of
consumers. The new, near full-size keyboard on the Mini NB200 is
available with a new ‘tiled’ layout to offer cleaner look and feel.
A total of four colour options will also be available, in shades of
brown, black, white and pink1 guaranteeing a design to suit any taste.
The Mini NB200 comes with a 10.1” widescreen TruBrite LED
backlight display (1024×600) providing richer colours and clearer
definition – perfect for browsing the internet. A standard three cell
Pink edition available from Q3 2009
battery offers life of up to four hours, while an upgraded nine cell
variation delivers up to nine hours life from a single charge –
providing maximum working flexibility when operating away from the
HDD protection
Integrated Hard Disk Drive (HDD) storage of 160GB ensures that
users have extensive storage space available for multimedia content
and personal documents. While the highly portable nature of mini-
notebooks exposes them to the knocks and bumps that are an
inevitable feature of life on the move, the Mini NB200 features a 3D-
accelerometer monitoring system that detects freefalls, shocks and
vibrations and protects the integrated HDD to secure against the loss
of any personal data.
An integrated 0.3MP webcam provides a portable option for online
video and teleconferencing, while connectivity including Bluetooth
and Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) allows users to easily connect to the internet
on the move. Three integrated USB 2.0 slots are also included,
providing the ability to plug into any number of external peripherals.
One of the three USB ports also features Toshiba’s innovative Sleep-
and-Charge technology, allowing users to charge mobile phones and
personal media players, even when the mini NB200 is turned off.
As a responsible global corporate citizen, Toshiba ensures that all
laptops are RoHS-compliant, effectively reducing the environmental
impact by restricting the use of lead, mercury and certain other
hazardous substances. The new Toshiba mini NB200 is ENERGY
STAR® 5.0 ready2.

The other specifications are same as many other netbooks in the market, like:

  • Intel’s N280 Atom processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 160GB Hard Disk Drive
  • 1,024 x 600 pixel resolution

Fuel Cell batteries anyone? – Toshiba Begins Fuel-Cell Production

We have been hearing about this sweet technology from past so many years, but no useful fuel-cell product has ever hit the market. Not any more. Next month, Toshiba will begin the production of fuel cell in Yokohama. The fuel cell will be of type direct methanol fuel cell. One of the products that will be produced will be Toshiba’s portable fuel cell. Unfortunately, since this is still its early stages, the prices are going to be too high for the average consumers costing between $100-$500.

The fuel cell technology has a lot of potential to completely change the way we use our devices. With fuel cell, it will be possible to have very light weight devices with days and in some cases, months of battery life!
