CES 2009: Coby Does Have Netbooks

Coby, Coby, Coby. Well, it doesn’t ring like that famous Cary Grant line but the exasperation is the same. First we hear that Coby is going to be marketing a sub $200 Netbook. Then we get a strong denial. Then here at CES 2009, Coby pops out a display of Netbooks. But catch this, according to this report from Engadget the rep at the Coby booth says that this is a ““market research project.” Hmmm? At under $200 a pop? Not sure there’s lots of room in those profit margins for a lot of ““market research.”
