Call it a netbook, call it a smartbook or call it whatever else you want — the bottom line is the Mobinnova élan is one of several upcoming miniature notebooks we can’t wait to see reach market. Beyond the sexy styling, intelligent design and integrated 3G connectivity, the élan will likely be the first NVIDIA Tegra-fueled notebook to reach market. Mmm, Tegra. The 8.9-inch screen on this puppy is just itching to cough up some sexy accelerated video and the battery/power management supposedly affords up to 10 hours of continuous HD video playback on a single charge or up to 24 days of continuous audio playback according to Mobinnova. Despite its distracting pink shell, the guys over at just issued a solid little hands on video of the élan (thankfully, it wasn’t shot in the middle of a show floor) that gives us all plenty of reasons to have our interest re-piqued. Hit the jump for the video of the sexy little Windows CE-powered smartbook, which by the way is due for release sometime in Q4.

Thanks, TheLostSwede!
