Tablet PCs may be eating away at the market share of netbooks, but that's not to say that netbooks are done and over with. They aren't even close to being old hat, and we'd argue that they still have quite some ways to go in terms of evolution. Netbooks are still growing into their own, with improved thermals allowing...

Product delays in the consumer electronics industry aren't altogether uncommon, but we're of the belief that it's better to wait and really nail the execution of things than to rush something out ahead of time. Infinitec, a start-up company that first came to light a few months ago, has now updated us with a revised... Read more...
It's getting difficult to discern one netbook release from another, which is our way of saying if you've seen one, you've seen them all. Until now. While the internal hardware is standard fare for a modern day netbook, MSI's latest entrant -- the Wind U135DX -- adds a bit of style to the genre by coating its latest netbook with its own "Color...

For a company that was once producing a new Eee PC netbook about every month, Asus has yet to introduce a new one in awhile. Of course, that's a relative term, but even going a few months without hearing of new Eee PC seems odd. Now, Asus has given us yet another machine to look at, the Eee PC 1201K. What's most unique about this machine isn't... Read more...

In case you haven't noticed, very few netbooks have ever shipped with an optical drive. You've either had to get a more expensive ultraportable, a thin-and-light or an external ODD in order to have the ability to read/burn a disc while using a compact mobile computer. There's now a good chance that the trend may be... Read more...
The subsidized netbook has been an interesting scenario. Some people enjoy the lower up-front costs and don't mind paying monthly for data services, while other think that these netbooks should be given away for free on a data plan since you can't actually take the data plan from PC to PC. Whatever your stance, Verizon Wireless has a new option... Read more...
This time last year, netbook sales were up nearly 900% from the same quarter a year earlier.

But while we're on the subject, no one really expected Tablet PCs to explode in the way they have, with Apple's iPad already... Read more...

Life is good for Intel, the No. 1 chip maker who recently announced the best first quarter it's ever had. But that isn't all the company had to say. During an earning conference call on Tuesday, Intel CEO Paul Otellini said another dual-core Atom processor is on the way. "The next innovation coming to Atom is on dual-core," Otellini said....

During the netbook boom, Nokia sat on the sidelines for most of the time and watched as everyone else raked in the profits, however slim those profit margins might have been. This time around, the Finnish corporation appears to paying closer attention to the market. As such, expect Nokia to introduce a tablet to compete against Apple's iPad,... Read more...
