We recently reported on the existence of the ECS G10IL, a mini-notebook/UMPC to compete with the Eee PC 900, but at the time ECS was very hush-hush on the details.  All that ended today when they posted the specs on their web site.

The G10IL will be powered by a Diamondville CPU riding on a 945GSE chipset and featuring a single memory socket that can accommodate a 2GB module.  Adding to all that is an option of 8.9 inch or 10.2 inch screen, a 1.3 megapixel, and a 4 or 6 cell battery.  Perhaps the most interesting feature is the tri-band HSDP/HSUPA technology:

“The 11-incher from ECS comes with built-in tri-band HSDPA and HSUPA, also called the "Super-3G" technology. The new broadband video technology allows downloads speeds of up to 7.2Mb/s for the HSDPA and 2Mb/s for the HSUPA. The ECS G10IL comes with three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet networking, a 56 kbps analog modem, WLAN and Bluetooth, and a 4-in-one card reader.”

There's still no word on pricing, but we're expecting them to surface sooner or later.

"The 11-incher?" I'm pretty sure they said it was a 10.2-incher. Still, sounds pretty cool.

 Interesting, guess their making one too.


Now they just need a nice 1.5 ghz atom chip and they will have massive sales. Though given the top processor maker, I have a feeling the Asus EEE, this ECS, and the Cloud will be very similar specs wise for the next generation or two.
