Dell Mini 1012 with Broadcom HD Review - 01-25-2010, 06:44 PM
Engadget have gotten hold of a new Dell Mini 10 with Broadcom Crystal HD decoder and posted a review of the unit.
There overall rating is not good, although they rate the look of the new Dell Mini, the HD capabilities of the Broadcom HD decoder are not yet fully available. Accelerated flash playback isn't available until version 10.1 beta 3 is released and the only supported media player at the moment is Windows Media Player, which means any HD iTunes downloads and blu-ray playback just aren't going to happen at this stage. However, time will tell!
They also mention that the HD Decode option will be coming as early as February!
Check out the full review at Engadget. Thanks to those who pointed this out.

I'd like to know too...that HD decoder (and the price) are the main deciding factors for me between the 1011 and the 1012...

bcm70012, Computers Networking, bcm970012. Great deals on eBay!
There is also a BCM70010 which seems to be very similar to the 12. But the 12 is exactly the same as the HP card, and I had no issues making it work with their software.
Also there is a newer version of the card that is not out yet, or was just released maybe. I think it will BCM70015 but am not 100% on that.
I have only testing this card on the MINI9's WIFI slot, but imagine that it will work in any WIFI or fully enabled PCIe slot.

Do you have any knowledge of it that it might work on the 10v? I read recall reading something about it how it requires some tweaking and whatnot
