The LG X110 packs portability, convenience and style in one compact package. You might think that this is yet another netbook, but look again and you’ll realise that this is one of the few machines that come with 3.5G HSPA built-in.

Mention the word ‘netbook’ or ‘ultraportable’, and the first thing that comes to mind would probably be the ASUS Eee PC. The original 7-inch Eee PC when launched, took the computing world by storm. You could even say that it re-defined the meaning of mobile computing. Since then, with netbooks slowly gaining market share (a large portion of it to ASUS and their Eee PC line), other manufacturers have also produced their own netbook models, hoping to get a slice of the lucrative netbook market.

In this review, we’ll be taking a look at LG’s first netbook, the X110. This netbook comes in two hardware flavors – with or without 3.5G HSPA support. (The one with support is also obviously more pricey). The X110 that we have on hand comes with the 3.5G HSPA module built-in. We will try it out, but more on that later.
