Hardware, Embedded Systems "After the incredible success of the Asus Eee PC, other manufacturers are ready to get their piece of the pie. This means that within the next few months we are going to see this segment go from just two devices - the Eee PC and the Nanobook (which has yet to come out in the U.S. but which we have been hearing about for some time) - to many more." Another article on the Eee says: "Five of the 10 best-selling notebooks, including the top three models this weekend do not run Windows or Mac OS X. In fact, they are different models of the same diminutive notebook the Asus Eee PC - that runs on Linux."

The ultra-portable market has already exploded, and it will continue to be "dominated" by cell phones and mobile apps. Trying to draw artificial distinctions between ultra-portables and cell-phones is silly. The price point is the same, and the capabilities are nearly identical; in fact, cell-phones have the additional advantage of seamless connectivity.
