Toshiba's NB105 netbook less interesting than we'd hoped

Apparently the temptation to crank out low-margin, impossible to differentiate Atom netbooks is even greater than we thought -- here's Toshiba's new entry, the NB105. You might remember that back in July Tosh was showing off a nifty touchscreen UMPC and talking about how the "six or seven" netbook market segments it had identified meant that it wasn't going to compete directly with the Eee PC, but hey, it was summer, you know? We all say things we don't mean and then spit out the same 8.9-inch machine with a 1.6GHz Atom, 1GB of RAM and Windows XP as everyone else. No pricing details yet, but the NB105 should be out in Mexico in November.
