3G, Windows 7, bigger screens


In a chat
with tech.blorge, Matt Kohut, Lenovo’s Worldwide Competitive Analyst shared his thoughts on the future of netbook development. The future, according to Kohut, involves a pinch Windows 7 with side order of 3G, all packed in a low fat 12-inch form factor.

Kohut points out that vendors are already moving toward bigger screens, and that customers are demanding bigger panels and lower prices. He sees a lot of potential in Windows 7, especially praising its touch capabilities, so we'll probably be seeing a lot more touchscreens on future netbooks.

He also confirmed the new OS will have a specialized version for netbooks, sort of. "Windows 7 is going to have, not a true netbook version, but a version intended to work especially well on netbooks," claims Kohut.

Lenovo thinks netbooks are not just a short term craze, they're here to stay, and as more serious models start to appear, business users will start to adopt them as well.
