"Think about it...Netbooks are the hottest commodity in PC sales right now. If a sub-200.00 dollar unit ships that offers 8 hours of battery life and has 3G it will not only crash the netbook party, it will be the LIFE of the netbook party. This netbook promises to be the iPhone of netbooks. I know there are a lot of readers out there that will say "But Linux-based netbooks were returned 4x more than Windows based netbooks." To that I will counter by saying at a price point of less than $200.00, with hardware features Freescale is offering, users won't give a toot what operating system it is running. And if Freescale plays its cards correctly (and has a distribution like gOS create a special interface the users will enjoy) there will be zero problems."
