As some of you may have noticed, we have been posting less and less here on NbC over the last few months. Some of this relates to the lack of news on netbook technology and some relates to our team exploring new opportunities. They say that every road comes to an end and it is with regret that we are today saying goodbye to Netbook Choice. It’s been an exciting journey for us and one that we’ve learned a lot from since we launched the site in March 2009.
Regardless of what you read, netbooks are here to stay, despite the threat from other form-factors such as tablets. There are a number of things to be excited about going forward including the fact that AMD is now on the scene with its Nile platform providing some much needed competition in the netbook processor space. We will also see Google’s Chrome OS and Intel’s dual-core netbook chip released by the end of the year that will, hopefully, lead to some exciting netbook designs.
We haven’t got too much to say about our new project(s) right now, although it is likely to continue in the mobile/portable computing segment. Never say never, but we may even resurrect NbC at some point in the future if the conditions are right. Until then, thanks to all of our loyal readers who have visited the site regularly. We wouldn’t have lasted this long without you.
