LG X110 Reviewed (Register Hardware)

LG X110 Register Hardware has published a review of the 10″ Intel Atom-powered LG X110 / Xnote Mini. The X110 is LG’s first netbook, but it’s not exactly new – it’s a rebranded version of the 10″ MSI Wind U100. There are a few notable differences – the model reviewed came with a HSDPA 3G modem for mobile broadband access. You can use your SIM card without having to attach a USB dongle – a much better solution, especially for one of these devices that might be slipped into and out of backpacks, etc., on a frequent basis.

The interesting thing on this model – it’s “free”, provided that you engage in a two year contract with a 3G/mobile provider (which may or may not cost more in the long run, depending on provider and options).

In addition to the 3G modem options and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, the styling is slightly different as well, and you get a choice of pink/white, black/white, or silver for colors. In the UK, LG offers Cyberlink Youcam software for the 1.3MP built-in camera.

It does only come with a 3-cell battery, and that was a major concern in the review.
