Lenovo Prepping a 12 Inch Netbook?

lenovo-s10-ideapad1Interesting. Some chatter this morning that Lenovo might be going a bit against the grain when it comes to Netbook screen size and prepping a 12 inch version called the S20. According to DigiTimes the S20 would feature the Intel Atom N280 chipset and speculation is that it will follow the same design of the S10 (pictured.)

The grain I was referrring to earlier is the restriction that Intel has placed on OEMs that Netbooks contain 10 inch screens or smaller. Well, if the rise of the Netbook has proved anything, it is that these disrupters can change any companies attempts at establishing a roadmap or standard. Just ask Microsoft.
