Hardware, Embedded Systems Lies, damned lies, and statistics. A really annoying overused catchphrase which sadly happens to be an adequate description of a story which appeared on Fortune's website, in which a Morgan Stanley report is quoted as saying that the introduction of tablet computers - the iPad specifically - have caused netbook sales to plummet. It seems like the researcher in question, however, needs to learn how to read her own graphs.

The netbook market hasn't really change since my last comment on osnews http://www.osnews.com/permalink?330245

Using a smart phone (iphone) and a 15.4" laptop leaves no place for an over-priced low-end machined (netbook) The price range $200 to $500 is an overkill for an atom CPU that doesn't do anything beside googling and email and few gigs of storage that can barely store two movies.
