Workhorse Certeza MC10 brings WWAN and ExpressCard to netbook scene

Yeah, we've seen netbooks with integrated WWAN / WiMAX before, but it's still pretty far left on the "uncommon" scale. Workhorse PC, a little known company that generally sticks to making products for governments and educational institutions, is apparently looking to vie for its piece of the netbook pie with the Certeza MC10. Overall, the 10.1-incher is pretty average, sporting an Atom N270 CPU, 1,024 x 600 resolution panel, up to 2GB of RAM, a 4-in-1 card reader, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 4- or 6-cell battery. Keeping it differentiated is the inbuilt WiMAX and WWAN options, not to mention the trio of OS choices (Ubuntu Linux, Windows XP or Windows Vista). The machine will be available starting at $399 (for the Linux model) and will go to around $549 (for the Vista model); regrettably, there aren't any actual launch dates to speak of.
