CVS has presented their much-talked about $99 Sylvania netbook this weekend.
The Sylvania is based on a C7-M ULV 1.2 GHz, VIA, comes with 1 GB of memory (DDR 533 MHz) Hard Disk (uahhh …) 30 GB, display 7 “(800 x 480) and the rest common to almost all netbooks (WiFi standard “b” and “g”, webcam and microphone, 10/100 Ethernet port, a DVI and two USB ports), all weighing just 900 grams. According to the announcement, netbook can even play videos from YouTube! not the HD, but want a device that would be too much even so humble.
What can discourage is the operating system, Windows CE. This version of the system serves as the basis for mobile systems from Microsoft, but it in itself is unfriendly to the end user, not to mention the scarcity of programs presented.
It is possible that this netbook is the Sylvania 7-inch Netbook shown on the SylvaniaNetbooks.com website, including the touchpad design which is visible on the CVS box. If this is the same netbook is has better specs than the $119 kMart netbook from last Black Friday but is still a subpar netbook unless you are specifically looking for a netbook running Windows CE.
CVS is reportedly also planning on selling an e-book reader called the “LookBook” for $180: the LookBook is also made by Sylvania. The LookBook is set to go on sale for September 19; the netbook has not been given a release date yet.
