Tech company in 'not bringing out a netbook' shocker

Share

no-netbook.jpgWell, this is a turn-up for the books. NVidia and VIA are NOT, repeat NOT, bringing out a netbook. In a world where brands are getting resurrected solely for the netbook market, it’s notable when a technology company decides that it’s not going to release its own pint-size laptop with no cd drive.

Originally, it was hoped that the two companies would produce a netbook featuring a mobile version of the VIA Nano chip, rather than the industry-standard Intel Atom chip. Those plans are now on hold, as are plans to build MIDs using the chips. Nvidia and VIA’s plans to build desktop machines together are, you’ll no doubt be pleased to hear, firmly intact.
