The picture will give you the fair idea of the size and looks of Olive 3G embedded netbook

3G embedded means the netbook comes bundled with Tata Teleservices' data packages (The advertisement on air mentions Tata Photon plus) which will bring to the consumer the convenience of connectivity 'Anytime, Anywhere'. This means with this netbook one doesn’t have to carry a wireless broadband stick that they put in the USB, every time they have to use wireless internet.

[Netbooks which are sometimes also called mini notebooks or ultraportables are a branch of subnotebooks, a rapidly evolving category of small, light and inexpensive laptop computers. So don’t bother too much about the term]

The key features of the new Olive Convergence Zipbook are:

1) Powered by Qualcomm's QSC 6085 chipset that will leverage the capabilities of HSIA technology on TTSL's network to enable users with 'Anywhere, Anytime' broadband connectivity and access advanced data applications and services on the move.

2) Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz processor

3) Intel 945GSE+82801GBM(ICH7)

13) Available in 4 colours: LamborginiYellow, Wine red, AppleWhite and JetBlack.

14) Inbuilt 3G Modem – olive 3g zipbook is India’s first netbook which has an inbuilt 3G modem. This means a user don’t have to carry a wireless broadband USB stick, which means a saving of around RS. 3000. In addition there’s less chances of wear and tear to modem as it’s inbuilt. Plus the company claims the inbuilt modem is 10 percent faster than the external USB modem.

15) Preloaded Windows XP – Unlike most netbooks which only provide the Linux operating system. The device comes with WIN XP operating system. As this will be a licensed version, the buyer saves an additional Rs 4000.

17) Webcam

18) NO BLUETOOTH (can be said a downside)
