Packard Bell to launch tiny EasyNote XS laptop

Packard Bell today announced the EasyNote XS, a tiny 7in laptop that runs Windows XP Home Edition.

Packard Bell claims the EasyNote XS is 'the perfect choice for mobile users that find full-sized notebooks too big and PDAs too limited'.

Perfect? We'll have to wait to review it. With its 7in screen the EasyNote XS is stacked with only 1GB DDR2 RAM and has a tidgy 30GB hard drive based around a VIA C7-M processor. The EasyNote XS has what Packard Bell describes as a 'full keyboard' (there's no numerical keypad), a 4-in-1 card reader, a pair of USB 2.0 ports and built-in Wi-Fi.

The XS weighs in at 950g and is just 30mm thick. Respecting the EasyNote XS's hardware's limitations Packard Bell includes Windows XP Home, and the claimed battery life is three hours with Wi-Fi enabled. Pricing has not been revealed.
