Netbooks are certainly capturing a lot of attention and apparently a lot of sales. They’ve certainly captured the imagination. In the long run, it will be interesting to see what the impact we’re all feeling today will really mean in the long run.
Iyaz Akhtar of gadgetell has published thoughts on why Netbooks have succeeded where UMPCs and Table PCs failed. Iyaz lists five reasons:
Form Factor (small and light)
Simplicty (primarily Internet Devices)
Time (the timing was right)
Microsoft (Microsoft had nothing to do with the platform according to Iyaz.)
While I wholeheartedly agree about UMPCs, I still hold out some hope for Tablet PCs, I can’t argue with any of the points raised. Can you?
