ASUS has announced the V2, its latest multimedia notebook — HSDPA included. It features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, ATI Mobility Radeon X1450 graphics, 80-160GB HDD, Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11a/b/g WLAN, a biometric fingerprint reader, and a 14-inch WXGA display. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.

Tapering from 1.1 to 1.4-inches, and weighing 5 pounds, we could’ve done with a teensy bit more portability
