We were so busy hunting down news on the Prada II and the 8MP KC910, that we forgot rumours of a new LG netbook. But lo, the Koreans have just unleashed their very own Eee PC wannabe, the X110.

It comes rocking all the features you've come to expect from 2008's must have accessory - 1GB of RAM, an 80GB HDD, an Intel Atom processor and a 10in screen as seen on the Eee PC 1000 series and the MSI Wind.

It's not without its faults though. There's no Linux variant, so you're stuck with Microsoft and there's no built-in HSDPA, in spite of LG touting it as a mobile broadband toy. Hmmm.

Still, it looks neat enoough. Our man on the inside says the white and pink versions will hit Phones4U on 1 November, with a black edition in shops soon after. No word on price, but then we spotted a leaked doc today suggesting a $700 price tag in the US. So not cheap.

If this has confused things even more for when it comes to netbooks, check out our feature on how to buy one of the blighters.
