Since it's not replacing the laptop, I think what’s basically missing
is a phone added to the mix. I don't see why users will want to carry
mobile, netbook and laptop at the same time. I foresee a Nokia
communicator type device with decent screen size and usable keypad to
overtake the Netbook just like Smarphones overtook the PDA. The
software being used will need to be adopted for this new phone, that
said, software to do all the above already exists for mobiles, it just
needs to be made more easy to use.
With larger screen size and better keyboard I don’t see a reason why
we’ll not see Netbooks being phased out to give way for the next
generation of mobile phones.
Is this thought too outlandish? What do you think?
