Packard Bell dot Announced

Packard Bell dot Speaking of re-badged netbooks/clones, we may have another one. Packard Bell, which was acquired by Acer earlier this year, is going to be releasing an 8.9″ netbook, the Packard Bell “dot”.

It bears more than a passing resemblance to the Acer Aspire One. Now Packard Bell already has one netbook, the 7″ Packard Bell Easynote XS, but unlike the VIA C7-M powered Easynote XS, the dot is powered by an Intel Atom (just like the Aspire One).

– Intel Atom CPU
– 160GB HDD
– 1GB of RAM
– Optional 6-cell battery
– Optional mobile broadband modules (3G)

It should see a European release in November, for £315 (around $580 USD).

Update: March 10, 2009, the Packard Bell Dot has been discontinued before it hit retail.
