Dell Mini 10 Getting GPS and Wi-Fi Positioning



Dell announced today that the Mini 10 will be getting GPS and Wi-Fi positioning. The GPS chip along with the Wi-Fi will be used to calculate your position. The Mini 10 will be the first system to offer the GPS built-in. The initial release will support Windows XP and Vista with support for Windows 7 coming soon.

I’m excited that GPS will be an option now. More and more services are going location aware and a netbook being an extension to your smartphone makes sense for it to have the same capabilities. Hopefully people can get it working under OS X when it comes out. Then I’ll be all over buying one.
