Coby Electronics has been showing off netbooks for ages, with little to show in the commercial sector for all their work. While Coby has hinted at a 10-inch and 12-inch model to come in the near future, an additional 8.9-inch netbook may also be forthcoming.
The netbook seems to be available for preorder at Electotronics for $282.43 and has adopted the ridiculous naming scheme of the larger netbooks as the all new Coby NBPC892XPBLK. Clues are also to be found at Buy.com concerning the new 8.9-inch netbook.
Here are the specs, lifted straight from Liliputing:
- Display: 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixels
- CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
- RAM: 1GB
- Storage: 160GB HDD
