Hardware, Embedded Systems We already knew netbooks were popular, but according to new data by research firm IDC, they are even more popular in Europe than we anticipated. The firm says that in 2008, netbooks sales accounted for 30% of total consumer portable sales in Europe, the Middle-East, and Africa. A big contributing factor are the telecommunication providers in Europe who subsidise netbooks.

Unfortunately Apple has highly underestimated this market and keeps pushing iPhone/Tunes/Apps... where an Apple Netbook could have been a real boost in selling their hard and software in Europe.
