Yes, LG’s netbooks are real and they’re spectacular

Lgx110netbookWell, as spectacular as a netbook can be if it shares 95% of the features and components of its brethren, that is. Wired caught a glimpse of the LG X110, affectionately known as “MOMO” on the United Arab Emirates LG site. MOMO means More Mobile, which it like “a little bit pregnant” to me. I suspect the name has to do with the integrated wireless broadband option and that “MO HSUPA” was too hard to pronounce.Aside from the 3G feature, the X110 is MO of the same: 1.6 GHz Intel Atom, 10-inch WSVGA display, 80-, 120- or 160-GB drive, 512 MB or 1 GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth and 1.3-megapixel webcam. One difference that jumps out: the X110 comes with Windows Vista Home Basic, something that’s pretty rare in the netbook space currently dominated by Linux and XP these days. Oh, and the occasional OS X version too. ;)Update, to get a better idea of the keyboard (which is a good differentiator), I found a large size image of the original pic I posted. Here’s the MSI Wind-like keyboard look of the X110. It has a full-sized Right-Shift key, so it makes the first cut for me.Lgx110closeup
