Compaq CQ10-688 Netbook for Verizon’s 4G LTE Network Announced

January 7, 2011, By Alex Ion

Two more gadgets seeing daylight at Verizon’s CES 2011 press conference in Las Vegas are the new Compaq CQ10-688 netbook and the new HP Pavilion dm1-3010 laptop. While the machines are not packed with ground-breaking tech, they do have decent specs any traveler on the go would appreciate.

The Compaq CQ10-688 which features a 10.1-inch WSVGA Anti-Glare LED display, runs on a newer generation Intel Atom N455 processor that ticks at 1.66GHz and promises a battery life of up to 8.5 hours.

Under the hood there’s 1GB of RAM, a 256MB (shared) Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 and a 250GB hard drive to store your documents and media files.

On top of that it runs Windows 7, has a nearly full-size keyboard (93% of full-size) and of course, is compatible with Verizon’s 4G LTE network. And did we mention the multi-format digital media card reader, the webcam (unspecified megapixels, but we think it’s a 2.1mp model) and multiple connectivity options –likely USB & HDMI.

Definitely nothing out of the ordinary with the new CQ10-688 netbook, but we’re sure you’ll appreciate that it’s less than 1-inch thick and probably the fact that it will be available as a subsidized product in Verizon’s 2011 lineup.
