Via Technologies, the x86 microprocessor developer, has announced the Global Mobility Bazaar (GMB) Tech Forum Spring, an event to discuss the future of netbooks. Over 200 partners are expected to attend, including PC manufacturing and infrastructure partners, from American Megatrends (AMI) to SanDisk.

With the already strong momentum around mini-notebooks increasing, the Via GMB Alliance has attracted interest from both established players and new companies wishing to enter the market. This is not only a validation of Via’s vision and strategy for the segment, but an acknowledgment of the tremendous business opportunity that exists around these popular devices.”

The event will have live demonstrations of the latest netbook technologies, as well as a number of presentations looking at netbook trends in this rapidly expanding market segment. The Tech Forum Spring will be held on March 17th 2009 in Shenzen, China.

Some of the topics being covered:

  • Mini-notebooks and Memory Modules – A win-win scenario
  • Mini-note Batteries – Exploding the myths
  • Mini-Notes and the transition to the Solid-State Drive
  • A Wirelessly Networked World – How do we get there?

  • Overall, it should be an interesting event and we’ll be keeping our ear to the ground if anything new comes from it.
