Sony is one of the last remaining holdouts in the netbook space but according to an interview of one of Sony’s executives that holdout will be ending soon. Laptop Magazine asked a Sony senior executive if Sony planned to produce a netbook and his answer was good news:
When we asked if Sony has plans to enter the netbook market, Abary gaveus a firm “stay tuned.” He would not reveal anything else about thedesign, but he added “we are letting the pioneers in the market makethe mistakes. Sony has to participate because consumers are our corecompetency. We have to participate.”
I wonder what mistakes that Sony will correct? Somehow I don’t think pricing is one of them but it’s good news to think of a Sony netbook.
