Dell Mini Inspiron gets semi-official: due out in August
Danny Dumas writes about Dell’s new ultra-portable notebook, Mini Inspiron, which is to be released sometime in August.

“Dell’s 9-inch (8.9-inch?) ultra-portable has now got a name and a vague release date. Called the Mini Inspiron and due out sometime in August, Dell has been tight lipped about features, specs, and pricing. But if past relationships with Microsoft are any indication, the Mini will almost certainly be paired with XP and an Atom processor. Ubuntu may also be a possibility, especially given the trends we’ve spotted in the mini PC market as of late.”
