Dell Inspiron Mini 12 – What was Dell thinking anyway?

It has Atom Processor and sports Vista Basic. Alright, those are specifications of a basic netbook. Wait. It has a 12″ screen. So, what is it exactly? A Notebook with Netbook specifications?

Dell Inspiron Mini 12 specifications:

  • 12.1-inch WXGA display (1280×800 resolution)
  • Intel Atom Processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Choice of 60GB or 80GB Hard Drive
  • Built-in Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g wireless
  • 2.72 lbs
  • 0.92-inches thick
  • Windows Vista OS

I fail to understand the target market though. 10.2″ screen devices should be maximum for the Netbook devices.

It is currently for sale in Japan and will soon hit the online stores.
