Fujitsu Siemens officially launched its long-rumored Amilo Mini at the IFA electronics show in Berlin on Wednesday. As predicted, it has an 8.9-inch screen and runs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor. According to JKKMobile, it will have 1GB of RAM and options of 60GB or 80 GB hard drives. He reports that the HDD speeds are 3,600 rpm/4,200 rpm. Seems a bit slow to us. The 2.2 pound system has 3 USB 2.0 ports, VGA out, an ExpressCard slot, and a 1.3 MP webcam. It will run Microsoft Windows XP Home. It is reportedly priced at €399 ($588). According to NetworkWorld.com, the company plans to roll the mini out in Europe in October and a similar computer will be launched by Fujitsu in the Americas and Asia. We are following up with our U.S. based Fujitsu contacts to get further information. Update: Fujitsu’s American team says at this time, there are no plans to offer a netbook similar to the Fujitsu Amilo Mini in the U.S. However, we do intend to offer a product in this class in the future. Sascha from EeePCNews.de had an early hands on with the Amilo Mini at the Showstoppers press show in Berlin. Overall he thinks the hardware feels good and looks stylish. However he complains about a small keyboard (similar to that on the Eee PC 901). See the shots below.
