Ever since Michael Dell was spotted toting a bright red ultraportable notebook around an industry conference earlier this year, there's been speculation about when Dell would unveil it as an official product.

That time is apparently this Thursday, September 4, according to Box.net, a company partnering with Dell on the ultraportable. Box.net makes OpenBox, an application for online file management that will be one of the preinstalled programs on the Dell Mini.

Box.net's inclusion on the PC indicates that Dell is targeting very mobile users. OpenBox is a hosted storage system, and it will allow access to almost two dozen online services like photo sharing, Facebook integration, file sharing, and online document collaboration tools.

Dell had no comment.
