Intel Netbook Strategy on Collision Course with Chrome


Intel has recently adjusted its netbook strategy and is set to cooperate with its partners including Asustek Computer and Acer to launch netbook devices priced below US$199 in regions such as the Middle-East, Latin America and Eastern Europe, according to sources from notebook players.

Meego it seems will be the OS of choice for these ultra-cheap netbooks, which brings to mind Google’s Chrome, an OS targeted at ultra-cheap netbooks, and now tablets. My bet is on Googling: KO in round one, assuming Google continues to keep completely open Chrome OS.
