CeBIT 2011 | Packard Bell unveils Easy Note NS notebook
With social networks exponentially increasing in popularity, gadget manufacturers appear to have discovered a new market to exploit. Starting things off was HTC’s Facebook equipped Cha Cha phone, and now it appears laptop manufacturers are entering the game courtesy of Packard Bell. According to Packard Bell, their latest notebook is aimed at social network fans and has certain features for easier accessibility to these sites.
As far as inner workings go, the Easy Note NS will come with a 2nd generation Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M or GT 540M with NVIDIA Optimus, up to 750GB of storage, and USB 2.0 and 3.0. The Easy Note NS is also equipped with a 14” display with a 1366x768 pixel resolution and a 4 hour battery.
What sets the Easy Note apart from other laptops is the presence of the Packard Bell Social Networks application that links users to three social networks with the press of a button. The hotkey will link to Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr and allow sharing of videos and photos.
Also adding to the laptop’s appeal is the interesting choice of colors that the device can be customized with. According to Packard Bell, the laptop will be available in Moonstone White, Garnet Red, and Ebony Black upon its launch. Unfortunately, the launch date and release have not been officially released, although word has it that it should debut in April with a 549 Euro base price.
