LG X120 Netbook Lands On AT&T, Brings Sleek Package With It

You'd think that with all the netbook competition in America, LG--a widely known company in the consumer electronics arena--would have an option in the mix. Amazingly, they don't. Well, they do now, but they didn't up until today. As with the Samsung Go, the LG X120 is making its official debut on AT&T's netbook, as it will be yet another 3G netbook offered on the US carrier.

The X120 has already shipped in a few other places (including Canada), but for whatever reason it has taken awhile to get to the States. It's easily one of the most attractive netbooks on the market today, and unlike most competitors this one ships with a unique SmartOn interface that helps users stay connected and get connected more quickly. It weighs in at just 2.8lbs. and handles most basic tasks and multimedia demands with ease. LG promises up to 7 hours of battery life, and since it's being sold at AT&T, you can count on finding a 3G GSM module within as well.

The unit ships with Windows XP, 1.3MP camera, Wi-Fi, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and a 10.1" display. As for pricing, you'll be looking at $179.99 on a 2-year AT&T DataConnect service plan, which will cost you $60 per month for 5GB of data (also per month).

Weighing only 2.8lbs, the slim and stylish LG X120 provides the computing power of a laptop with the freedom of a mobile device. Equipped with an innovative Smart On(TM) interface that loads in seconds, the LG netbook connects to web and photos, instant messaging and MP3 player with just the touch of a button. Designed with a sleek white matte exterior and fashionable blue trim, the LG X120 delivers 7 hours of battery life and built-in AT&T 3G wireless connectivity. Users can explore the internet, update blogs and download music from just about anywhere, anytime on the nation's fastest 3G network.

The LG netbook also features 1GB RAM and 160GB hard drive that offers users ultimate storage space for music, photos and gaming while a generous 10.1" screen with crystal clear LED backlighting creates a viewing experience perfect for watching videos and reading e-mails while on the run. A built-in 1.3 megapixel camera and HD stereo speakers provide clear, more precise video chatting and conferencing with friends and colleagues.

"We created the LG X120 to allow consumers to stay connected on their own terms," said Ehtisham Rabbani, vice president of product strategy and marketing for LG Mobile Phones. "The Smart On(TM) button puts consumers seconds away from the fun stuff such as showing off your vacation photos or picking your fantasy football line-up."

LG X120 also includes a traditional start up feature booting the complete Windows XP Operating system that allows users to plan a budget or build a basic presentation on professionally based applications. No longer limited to Wi-Fi hotspots, 3G HSDPA provides on-the-go connectivity giving users instant access to all the tools that keep them connected and make them unique.

The LG netbook will be available at select Radio Shack stores nationwide and online at www.RadioShack.com for $179.99 with a 2-year AT&T DataConnect service agreement, a $60 monthly 5GB plan. AT&T DataConnect subscribers also receive access to AT&T Wi-Fi service, which includes more than 20,000 Hot Spots nationwide.
