ECS G10L in Europe by Oct. Look for Carrier branding.

ECS, the people that made one of the first Origami UMPCs, the Tablet Kiosk i7209, will be bringing their netbook to the European market via a different route to many of the other big netbook brands. An article in PC World today describes how the ECS G10L will include a 3G module and that deals with carriers in Europe have already been made.

The high-end ‘G-series’ model includes a 6-cell battery, a 10.2" screen, Windows XP, an 80GB drive and will cost $500. It’s not clear if this is the cost to the reseller or the RRP. Either way, end-users are likely to be encouraged to buy a data contract which will subsidise the cost depending on the data plan. We say, expect sub 300 Euro prices and the possibility of subsidies taking the price down below 100 Euro.

ECS also said in the interview that a smaller-screened ‘J-Series’ version will also be produced.

More details and news links available on the G10L product page.
