Bangalore: Olive Telecom has launched a netbook with an inbuilt CDMA 3G connection from Tata Photon. Olive Zipbook X107H has this inbuilt modem which removes the risk of breaking the modem. Also, research has indicated that inbuilt modem is up to 10 percent faster than an external USB modem, the company claims.

The Zipbook comes with Windows XP operating system, which is surprising considering the launch of Windows 7 few months earlier. Windows may stop supporting XP in couple of years.

Weighing 1.1 Kg, Zipbook has 160GB of storage space with 1GB of DDR2 memory and an integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam. The Zipbook supports full HD (1080p) videos.

The built in modem is a book as well as a curse. For someone who is planning to take Tata photon broadband service, this notebook will be a good option. But for other users who are not keen on using Tata photon service, it is an advantage they will never use.

Olive Zipbook X107H is available for 18,000, with a one year warranty. The company is also offering 100 days replacement warranty.

3: What about the consumers who already have internet connection at home and are not willing to change their fast speed internet.

Are there any other product which are available from Olive without inbuilt internet connection. And on what cost.
