Aware launches A-View netbook with detachable screen, for $150?


Details are a bit light on this one, but Taiwan's Aware Electronics looks to have taken advantage of the now-happening Global Sources trade show to introduce a new netbook with a fairly significant surprise up its sleeve: a detachable screen. Other than that, about the only thing known about the netbook is that it'll come equipped with just 512MB of RAM, an 8GB SSD, and your choice of Windows or Linux for an OS. The real kicker, however, is the price, which will supposedly be just $150. That would seem to be at least somewhat feasible for the emerging markets that Aware is targeting with the device, though it seems to be pretty unlikely that it'll be selling for that price 'round here anytime soon.
