The processor giant, Intel plans to launch models of Netbooks with Android as its operating system, and even very low prices of about $ 200, in what seems like the last attempt of such computers to survive.
In Intel simply does not want to let die to Netbooks .According to comments from some of the top executives over the household specialist processors, including the very Paul Otellini, CEO (CEO) will soon leave office, said they have plans for this year related to these types of computers laptops, which include among many things, Netbooks with Android as its operating system, a more than unique.
All forecasts gave the year 2013 as that would die at Netbooks , thanks to the impressive growth in the market of smartphones and especially tablets , showing the preference of the majority of users in this type of device for simple things as surf the internet, watch videos, view and edit office documents quickly and walk through the social networks. At the end of the day this was the value that was given to a Netbook, asits hardware was very limited to work completely on them.
Intel does not think so. The company responsible for the processors used in the world still sees the possibility of revival of the Netbook, with the help of very low prices and offering users the ability to do “what he does with a tablet “, but assisted by a full physical keyboard, plus some useful ports like USB and HDMI.
To do this, you want to make use of the most widely used mobile operating system in the world, so you can launch with Android Netbooks hand from different manufacturers ( I’m 110% sure that Samsung, ASUS and Acer will be involved in their plans ) and with prices as low as just $ 200 , and it is this last point that might make bold to these new mini-laptops .
Death of the Netbook was virtually assured considering its amazing and accelerated decline in the market, virtually disappearing altogether (except for some vendors and Latin America, where they still sell very little, but are sold). Incorporating a popular operating system and already known by many users in the world would you care some, but do not know if enough to consider buying it. In addition, the ability to install any of the 700,000 apps in the store Google Play is another plus, and the vast majority have no sense on a device of this type.
What might this mean for Google?
One important thing to consider is that these Netbooks with Android, when running through a heart Intel Atom mobile phones are almost as mini-computers, and if we see the benefits of this as the point of the applications that I mentioned, in many cases devices are more useful than a Chrome book. It’s that simple.
In addition, Intel also consider other interesting points as said Dadi Perl mutter, who is vice president of the company, in an interview with sources, speaking of Netbooks convertible tablets ( or vice versa ), which gives versatility to a traditional Chrome book .
On the one hand very difficult to see that this will make a tweak even the tablet market, but on the other, if I see people who if they venture to buy a Chrome book ( so are few ) I might think twice before gain a portable Google and rather consider a Netbook with OS Android .
Perl mutter says that these will arrive in 2013, so we have to wait a bit to see how he does the Netbook in what clearly could be your last breath of life.
