Fujitsu Siemens plans to launch a mini laptop computer at the upcoming IFA trade show in Berlin, it said this week.

Few other details are known about the computer but it can be seen in a YouTube video and appears to be about the same size as competing mini-laptops.

The machine is likely to be detailed at a Fujitsu Siemens news conference on Aug. 28.

The entire mini-laptop sector barely existed a year ago but was brought to life when Asustek Computer launched its Eee PC in June 2007 and promised the machine would cost around US$200. Several models of the computer have now been launched and numerous other PC makers have also launched mini-laptops to capitalize on the low-cost segment of the market.

IFA is one of the world's largest consumer electronics shows and takes place in Berlin from Aug. 29 until Sept. 3.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
