Google Chrome OS: Reviving Netbooks or Invading Notebooks

[ Thanks to The

“Hmmm… It’s interesting to note that Google doesn’t
mention netbooks in that home page blurb. Google’s CR48 pilot
program also focuses heavily on the notebook term rather than
netbook hype. That’s likely a smart move. In Microsoft’s most
recent quarterly results, the company disclosed that Windows-based
netbook sales fell a drastic 40 percent. Some analysts think
Apple’s iPad has triggered the sales slowdown. That’s part of the
reason. But there’s another explanation as well: Plenty of
first-time netbook buyers from 2008 aren’t coming back to buy more
netbooks because they found the devices too small, too cramped and
too limited, The VAR Guy believes.”
