On again, off again, on again. Intel is responding pretty loudly to word that its Pine Trail chipset was going to be delayed until 2010. That’s not the case says Mooley Eden of Intel. Look for Pine Trail in 2009 as previously planned.
It either will or it won’t ship in 2009 and we’ll find out when it does, but already there was talk of Acer and Asus delaying net Netbooks until 2010 and a finger pointing at Intel and the purported Pine Trail delay as one of the reasons. Acer now seems to be back trakcing on that a bit saying that its Android Netbook is still on target for release sometime in September or earlier.
