Apple Netbook?!?

Thursday, March 19, 2009

After staying away for almost a decade, Apple entered the mobile phones market and it all went pretty well. Considering the fact they only have one handset in that market, the iPhone, and a solid market share, it worked out more than just "well," but today we're not going to talk about the iPhone. I only mentioned it because it's about the same with the netbooks market and now they are not going to stay away for too long, as it seems. While the image above was generated using a computer, the truth may not be too different. After all, the netbooks currently on the market aren't hunting for the best design trophy, because it's all about features and battery life vs price, at least as I see it.

Now, a report from the Chinese-language Commercial Times says "Wintek revealed that it is currently working with Apple to develop some new products, but it said it does not know what applications the new products are for. Wintek added that no shipment schedule has been worked out yet, but shipments are likely to begin in the second half of the year."

That's awesome! I know the real thing may prove to be completely different when and if arrives, but think about a touch screen netbook - is this someething awesome, or not?

According to the same article mentioned above, the Wintek-made panels will go to Quanta, who will be in charge of assembling the netbook, and the little laptop should arrive in Q3, this year. Anyway, no matter how interesting this sounds, I wouldn't postpone my netbook purchase for a later date just to get one from Apple - don't forget nothing is official yet, so we may not see an Apple netbook showing up anytime soon.
