Jetway Information is known for making motherboards and graphics chips, but like all the other companies that aren’t specialized in manufacturing netbooks but are breaking into that market anyway, this company is planning on launching its Ecomo EM100 netbook.
The Ecomo EM100 will have a 10.1″ screen display with 1024×600 resolution, 1 GB of RAM, and a 160 GB hard drive, and be powered by a 1.66Ghz Intel Atom N280 processor. It also has 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and a 1.3 megapixel webcam and runs on the Windows XP OS. Sounds like pretty standard specs for a netbook so far, right?
Unlike other netbooks, the Ecomo is eco-friendly, since parts of it are made from recycled packaging and recycled plastic. The Ecomo is also unique in that it is equipped with patented Audio 3D Technology that delivers high-end audio with “stable bass and sweet soprano.”
This netbook also has a multi-gesture touchpad, which allows users to scroll on a page by horizontally sliding their fingers across the touchpad, and zoom in and out on photos and maps with a pinching gesture, much like a similar functionality on the iPhone.
The dimensions of this machine are 255mmx191.2mmx27mm and it weighs roughly 1.1kg with a 3-celled battery. The EM100 netbook is set for release soon, and we’ll let you know more once we hear anything.
