Details Of Jolicloud Jolibook Netbook Emerge

The Jolicloud Jolibook netbook will be launched later this month according to the CEO of the company which produces the eponymous cloud OS platform.

Techcrunch's Robin Wauters talked to Tariq Krim of Jolicloud who confirmed that the computer would be called Jolibook and that it will run on Jolicloud 1.1.

It will be HTML5-based, come with Chromium, the open source browser on which Google Chrome is based (no details of whether it will be version 9 or not), Spotify, VLC, Skype and other apps which will be "one click away".

The Jolibook is powered by a dual core Intel Atom N550 clocked at 1.5Ghz, sports a 250GB hard disk drive, a VGA port, three USB sockets, an Ethernet port and it will be able to play HD ready video content.

Krim confirmed that it will be affordable and Wauters says that it will probably come with a 10.1-inch screen. We're not sure when it will be available in the UK and at what price and we'll do a little digging to find out more about it.
