Poaches ECS's notebook business president
rumoured to be mulling a jump into notebook waters, and the
recruitment of ECS's former notebook business president gives some
credence to the rumours.
However, Shuttle points out that hiring a notebook expert doesn't have
to mean the company will enter the market, as notebooks, motherboards
and PCs are all tightly connected. Shuttle says it will continue
developing niche products to reduce the impact of the economic crisis.
Still, the rumoured entry into the notebook market sounds plausible.
Shuttle has made quite a name for itself in the SFF PC business, and
we're believe the brand could do well in the notebook market as well.
Shuttle is conspicuously absent from the nettop market as well. Recently
it has launched an Atom-based all-in-one, but it still has no Atom
nettops or barebones to offer.
