Smartbook Logo CULV laptop will debut among smartbooks at CeBIT 2010

Smartbook, a German computer company, is ready to debut its latest creation, the Smartbook Logo, at CeBIT in Hanover next week. But don't get confused because this isn't a smartbook.

Smartbook AG, a German computer company, is ready to debut its latest creation, the Smartbook Logo, at CeBIT in Hanover next week. But don't get confused because this isn't a smartbook.

The name of this laptop already has a lot of tech bloggers puzzled ahead of the tech trade show in Germany next week.

Part of what makes up a smartbook is a 3G UMTS modem, a long battery life and an ultra-portable design (lightweight, shell design, etc.). Well, the Smartbook Logo has all of those qualities, but its advertised by Smartbook AG as a laptop powered by an Intel CULV processor.

It gets more confusing as Qualcomm has a line of Lenovo smartbooks, which aren't allowed to be referred to as smartbooks in Germany without a mention of Smartbook AG, according to the ruling of a German court. Gee whiz.

Back to the Smartbook, just so you can get an idea of what this gadget really is, here's some stats:

  • 11.6 inch display (1366 x 768 resolution)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • 250GB hard drive
  • 1GB of RAM
  • HDMI output
  • 8 hours of battery life
  • 2.86 pounds

And unlike a lot of gadgets gearing up for CeBIT debuts, we actually know a price already on this one, set at €699 ($947). But there isn't a definite release date as of now.
