HTC HD2, Motorola CLIQ XT, and Dell Mini 10 launch dates for T-Mobile surface

TMo_DellM10_HD2_Launch

One of our ninjas just dropped some tantalizing and blurry details for us to feast on. We’ve been informed that T-Mobile will be releasing the Motorola CLIQ XT on March 10th, the HTC HD2 (listed as “Dark Handset” on the screen capture) is confirmed on March 24th, and a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook, complete with T-Mobile broadband access, on the 24th as well. Our connect also mentions the launch of Even More 1.5, but no details were given. Looks like it is going to be a pretty busy month for the number four carrier in the U.S. Hit the break for one more shot!

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook to offer WiMAX option?

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook to offer WiMAX option?

dell-mini-10-wimax-fcc

Dell’s popular Mini 10 netbook may be adding WiMAX to its long list of connectivity options as the latest iteration, model 1012, was spotted at the FCC rocking the Intel WiMAX/WiFi link 6250 chipset. The Mini 10 is highly customizable with the base computer including a 10.1 inch widescreen display with an HD resolution option, an Intel Atom processor, 1GB DDR2 SDRAM, Integrated Intel graphics, Wi-Fi, Qualcomm GOBI chipset with AT&T 3G or Verizon Wireless 3G, optional GPS, optional TV tuner and Windows XP or Windows 7 Starter edition. The FCC documentation does not hint at any exclusive WiMAX carrier but it would be nice to see the netbook offered by Clear, Sprint or one of the other WiMAX resellers with a generous subsidy.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook now available to order, officially

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook now available to order, officially

After a rocky start that is becoming increasingly common for the company, Dell has now officially made its new Mini 10 netbook available for order. The snazzy little netbook first appeared on the site for pre-order a few days ago, then it became available for order, then the pricing changed a few times, etc. All of the wrinkles have seemingly been ironed out now however, and Dell’s newest Mini is available at the proper (and reasonable) starting price of $399. So what does $399 get you?

  • 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor, 533 MHz FSB, 512K cache
  • Windows XP Home SP3
  • 10.1-inch anti-glare display (1024 x 576)
  • 160 GB 5400 rpm SATA HDD
  • 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM
  • Wireless 802.11g (1397) Mini Card
  • Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500 video card
  • 24WHr Lithium-Ion Battery (3-cell)

In a move pretty uncharacteristic of Dell, customization options on the Mini 10 are limited at best. You’ve got a bunch of colors and the option to bump up to a 1.6GHz processor for $50 but beyond that, it is what it is. There is no option for a bigger hard drive or an SSD, no Linux option and perhaps most importantly, no option to toss in more RAM. Remember, word on the street is that there will be no way to add more RAM yourself so tread with caution. Supposedly Dell will be adding a bunch of options later this year (more RAM, Ubuntu, Vista, more hard drives, Bluetooth, GPS, WWAN and a TV tuner) so the early adopter tax is super high – but no where near as high as with the crazies who actually paid the $560 QVC price. Anyone thinking about scooping one up despite all that?
