Kohjinsha introduces MT netbook with built-in Express card and TV-tuner

Kohjinsha has introduced a new netbook series called MT Series. This netbook comes with the Atom N270 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM and 160GB HDD, which is pretty much similar to other netbooks we have seen so far, but what sets it apart from the plethora of netbook out there is its express card slot and TV-tuner.

The MT series is now available in Japan at a price of 49,800 yen, which is about $513. I’m pretty sure by the time it reaches in other parts of world, it won’t be equipped with the TV-tuner card. The netbook comes with 3-cell battery. The 6-cell battery is also there if you need more juice. There are 2 USB 2.0 ports and a multi-card reader.

EEE PC T91 for just $549! – ASUS to redefine the price range of Tablets?

Looks like ASUS is really going to make the tablets finally popular among the consumers. Let’s face it, tablets have always been confined to the executives and businessmen. The main reason that the tablets were not received nicely in the consumer market was due to high ‘price’. But, with the $549 price tag, ASUS has hit the sweet spot between functionality and price.

Also, we have heard that ASUS has added few really exciting utilities that are very finger friendly. This is already looking like a winner to me.

Weight: Under 2 lbs.
Battery: Li-polymer, 5 hours runtime

MSI U123, U123T and U123H netbooks launched

MSI U123 is the successor of now aging U100. The U123 comes with 2GB RAM and uses the N280 Intel Atom processor. The MSI has also launched MSI U123H, which is similar to the U123 except for the fact that it comes with built-in 3.5G. The U123T comes with a built-in TV tuner card, which will let you watch (and record) TV programs on your netbook.

However, it is not a huge upgrade. I was looking forward to higher resolution. 1024 x 600 is nice but 1280 x 800 is something I would have really appreciated.

One piece of information that the MSI is repeatedely mentioning in the news release is the massive capacity of U123, which is 160GB. What? We have been using the 160GB HDD in our netbooks from quite sometime. In fact, it is a standard feature in netbooks these days and there is no need to mention it 4 times in the news release.
