Focus shifts to tablets, ultraportables


It appears Samsung is planning to discontinue its 10.1-inch netbook range in early 2012.

In an email sent to its European partners, Samsung says the outfit will officially discontinue the notebook range in Q1. Samsung goes on to say that it will focus on 11.6- and 12-inch ultraportables, as well as new ultrabooks in 2012.

However, this does not mean Samsung will no longer offer affordable ultraportables and it will probably continue to market 11.6-inchers based on next generation Cedar Trail Atoms.
