Dell and HP moving focus away from 10-inch netbooks?

April 1, 2010 at 3:35 pm


Dell and HPDell and Hewlett-Packard (HP) are significantly reducing their investment in the production of 10-inch netbooks according to sources at Digitimes. The reason behind is this is supposed lower than expected profits from the current Intel Pine Trail netbooks.

The report goes on to say that HP may quit the 10-inch netbook segment altogether and instead focus on 11.6-inch AMD-powered netbooks. The competitiveness in this segment is one of the reasons why there has been a slow take-up of smartbook devices by vendors. I find it hard to believe that both companies would want to move away from 10” netbooks given their success in this segment, but stranger things have happened.

Update: Electronista is reporting that the Dell Mini 10 is “not going anywhere,” according to a spokesperson.

    Yeah .. whats 11.6″ going to get these manufacturers that a 10.1″ can’t unless they package the 11.6″ with DVD drive – the only thing that can absolutely differentiate between the two screen sizes. I say keep the 10.1″ – the original. Notwithstanding this, 10.1″ = netbook , while anything with a bigger screen like 11.6″ = < ultraportable.
