22nd October is the date and although there's no UK announcement, we can get an idea of how much it might cost us. Germans will be asked to cough up €249 (£231) to take home a 3G - plus €20/month (£18.50) on contract. That totals a whopping £675 over the lifetime of the two-year deal.
That puts it firmly in the premium category for netbooks but pretty close to the £600 we expected when we cast our nose over it last month.
Expensive it may be, but the built-in 3G, Assisted-GPS chip, HD screen, HDMI port and stonking 12-hour battery life - together with its MacBook-esque carved aluminium chassis - go some way to justifying the price tag.
