Microsoft and Intel hope Windows 8 can revitalize netbook market

Posted on Tuesday, June 19 2012 @ 15:27:54 CEST by


DigiTimes reports Microsoft and Intel have hopes that the upcoming Windows 8 operating system will not only raise demand for ultrabooks, but also help to reenergize the collapsed netbook market with the newly added touchscreen functionality as well as sub-$399 pricing and thin and light designs.
The sources noted that Microsoft and Intel believe an ultra-thin 10- to 12-inch netbook with touchscreen control and instant boot as well as a price below US$399 can help re-attract consumers.

Since the launch of Windows RT-based tablet PCs will not profit Microsoft much, the sources believe that Microsoft's work on Windows RT is meant for the preparation of Windows Phone 8 in 2013 with the addition of communication chips and software adjustment, a Windows RT-based device can immediately transform into a smartphone. Nokia and HTC are both already working with Microsoft over the related development.
