Samsung to ditch 10-inch netbooks next year

Written by Fudzilla staff



Focus shifts to tablets, ultraportables


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