Dell will announce its netbook, the Mini Inspiron 910, tomorrow, according to a story in today's WSJ. The new netbook had been expected any day, but the details came to light after a partner, Box.net, a provider of online storage, sent an e-mail to the newspaper touting its work with Dell.

The Inspiron 910 is rumored to have the standard netbook specs including an 8.9-inch display, 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, SSDs up to 16GB, and the choice between Windows XP or Linux operating systems. It is expected to cost $400 or less.

Lenovo has already announced its IdeaPad S10, but it won't ship in the U.S. until early October. The S10's specs include a 10.2-inch display, 1.6GHz Atom processor, either 512MB/80GB HDD or 1GB/160GB HDD, and Windows XP. It will start at $400. Lenovo is also expected to offer an S9 version for some countries in Asia and Europe with an 8.9-inch display and a small SSD for around $300.
