These days every self-respecting PC maker is jumping onboard the netbook train. The latest player to enter this market is Packard Bell, TC Mag reports the firm will debut a 8.9" netbook called "dot".

"We've been watching netbooks ever since they first appeared. But we've always considered them too austere and too business oriented for consumers," says Emmanuel Fromont, Sales & Marketing Vice President, Packard Bell. "So we told our designers and engineers to rethink the netbook, to look at it through the eyes of a family, not a company. The result is the dot." The dot netbook will be available in European stores in November for around 400EUR.
