As Golem reports (German), the nice little, albeit certainly not high-performance will be offered in Germany, too, starting next month – for 299 € (model “4G”, white and black).
The display is a little small, just 7 inch with 800×480 pixels, as is the battery running time of 3 to 3½ hours, but otherwise this may be a quite useful surf gadget, being just about the size of a C5 envelope (22,5×16,5×3,5cm) and 920g heavy/light.
Linux is preinstalled, but Windows XP drivers are apparently also available. Whether XP will run satisfactorily on the slow processor, 512MB memory and only 4 GB flash hard drive, remains to be seen.
Also it’s of course questionable if it’s wise to buy the first product of this (intended) series right away… but it’s tempting…
