Dell's Inspiron 910 Netbook Available Friday? Or is it Thursday?

Dell's answer to the Asus Eee PC, the Inspiron 910, now has a date, according to reports. While there is still no confirmation as the price, which has been widely rumored as $299, it appears the netbook will be showing up "any time soon."

According to Gizmodo, that day will be Friday, Sept. 5th. It should be noted this isn't the first date the 910 has "received;" an earlier rumor said the UMPC would show up on Aug. 22nd.

Problem is, there's yet another date running around the Web: according to Box.net, which makes OpenBox, one of the preinstalled apps (AKA crapware) on the UMPC, that date is Thursday, Sept. 4th.

Still with some of the support documentation showing up online, it's definitely gotta be soon (keyboard, external optical drive, status LEDs), and either way, it is.
