Intel ULV Core Solo Processor Info?

DailyTech reports that Gateway jumped the gun by announcing information about new laptops based on the Intel Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Core Solo -- ahead of Intel's official announcement.

The NX100 from Gateway features Intel Ultra Low Voltage Core Solo processors. These Yonah-based processors come in at 1.06GHz and 1.2GHz speeds with a 533MHz bus and 2MB of L2 cache. The specs for the Gateway notebook show a 12.1" screen, 0.8inch thickness, 3lbs and will start at $1399. CNet Video review.

The ULV Core Solo is said to be announced around April 16th.

There has been previous speculation about the processor Apple plans on using in the upcoming Intel-iBook. Apple is presently using the high end Core Duo processor for the MacBook Pro. This leaves a broad range of possibilities left for the iBook, including slow clocked Core Duos, Core Solo processors and Low Voltage Core Duos. The Ultra Low Voltage Core Solo processor featured in the Gateway machine appears to be targeted for "ultraportable" laptops -- a category in which Apple does not presently have a offering.
