Leaked images and specs of Dell's upcoming netbook have been doing the rounds for some time now, but so far we've only been left wondering about a specific release date. According to a recent report, however, the company's entry into the crowded mini-notebook market could be just around the corner.

The 8.9-inch Dell E notebook (or as it's now reportedly being called, the Inspiron 910) will be dropping this Friday, featuring up to 16GB of flash based storage and an Intel Atom under the hood as well as up 1GB of RAM, a 3-in-1 card reader, three USBs and a 1.3MP webcam. There's no new pricing information available, but if previous reports are accurate, a base model with 512MB of RAM and a 4GB SSD should sell for just $299.
