It's already confirmed for this week
. Now The Wall Street Journal
is reporting that the Dell Inspiron 910 Mini netbook will be announced on Thursday the 4th courtesy of an eMail received from Box.net, an online photo and document storage service already seen bundled with Creative's Vado Pocket Video Cam
. Apparently, Box.net services will "come pre-installed on the Dell Mini." A Dell spokeswoman confirmed that Dell is working with Box.net for online storage. A person familiar with the matter says that the Mini will likely sell for less than $400, run your choice of Windows or Linux (Ubuntu
, is our guess), and sport a display slightly less than 9-inches. You know, all this service talk has us wondering if this will also be Dell's first laptop with its Zing-based audio and video services
bundle. Fortunately, we'll know tomorrow.
P.S. That image above is from these earlier leaks
and matches the keyboard configuration in Dell's own support documents
. In other words, it's what we expect to see tomorrow.Update
: Heh, so much for that image above. Dell has updated the support docs
again. See the new keyboard after the break.
