LG has announced that it will be rolling out its first netbook in the US. The LG X120 will be available exclusively through RadioShack (or "The Shack"), and comes complete with the traditional netbook fixings. Crammed into a 2.8lb package is a 10.1" LED-backlit display with a native resolution of 1024x576, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, as well as a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, 3G connectivity, and 3W speakers.
The system's six-cell battery supplies it with up to seven hours of battery life, and it ships with Windows XP rather than Windows 7 Starter. LG says that users will be able to quickly access the web, photos, IM programs and an MP3 player via the company's Linux-based SmartOn feature, without waiting for the operating system to boot up. The X120 is backed by AT&T's 3G network and will cost about $180 after committing to a two-year data plan.
