AT CES today HP announced the new HP Mini 210, their latest consumer level netbook that comes with the newer Intel Atom N450 processor and an optional HD accelerator to provide users with better HD video playback and includes an HD screen upgrade. The Mini 210 also offers broadband connectivity, GPS and comes in four color choices; Black Crystal, Silver Crystal, Pacific Blue or Sonoma Red.
In addition to the hardware upgrades HP is including several new software offerings to complement the use of the Mini 210 as a secondary computer.
HP CloudDrive powered by ZumoDrive allows users to access their
synchronized content documents, photos and music from the cloud, without
having to store it on a local drive.
HP MediaStream allows users to stream multimedia content from one PC to
another over the Internet, without requiring data to be downloaded.
HP QuickSync software, also available on the HP Mini 2102, automatically
synchronizes files created or edited on the road with a home or business PC
over a wireless connection when connected to the same network.
HP QuickWeb allows users to access the web without booting up the notebook
by simply pushing a button. In seconds, users have a connection to the Internet
and can access websites and other content that normally requires a standard
browser, as well as photos, music and more.
The new HP Mini 210 should provide consumers with better performance than the previous MIni 11o model and offer longer battery life mainly thanks to the inclusion of the Intel Atom N450 processor.
The HP MIni 210 starts at $299 and will be available on January 7th.
