Dell Senior Marketing Manager Karen Gonzales confirmed today the release of the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 in the Philippines. See specs and photos after the jump.
During the Philippine launch of Intel Atom this afternoon at the Manila Ocean Park, I approached an executive from Dell to confirm the release of the rumored Dell Inspiron Mini 9.
Specs include an Atom 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM and 16GB SSD. This lone model will run Windows XP Home with an 8.9-inch display screen (1024×600 pixel resolution). Ubuntu Linux-based Dell-customized interface will come later.
No suggested retail price has been given but they said it should fall somewhere between Php20,000 to Php25,000. (More photos as we update this story.)
The official launch in the Philippines will be on September 17, 2008 together with the Dell Studio series. It will be available in the market by October.
Update: Apparently, this was just announced in the US a couple hours ago. Dell PR has provided us with additional info and clearer pictures.
Models range from 4 to 16GB SSD, 512MB to 1GB, 1.3MP webcam, Wifi and Bluetooth.
