Microsoft wants new name for netbooks

Posted on Wednesday, June 03 2009 @ 20:20:51 CEST by


DigiTimes heard at Computex that Microsoft is not happy with the term "netbook", instead the software giant introduced a rather long and awkward new term for these systems: "low cost small notebook PC".
Microsoft plans to redefine mini-notebooks that Intel has categorized as netbooks with a new term – low cost small notebook PC, according to Steven Guggenheimer, general manager of the Application Platform & Development Marketing Division at Microsoft.

Guggenheimer pointed out on June 2 in Taipei during Computex 2009 that since some of the mini-notebooks already feature capabilities more than just purely Internet browsing – which is the main purpose of the netbook – therefore the term netbook should be abandoned.
