If they really can get smartbooks--i.e., smartphone processing and power consumption with a netbook keyboard and display--down to $100/ea, I think it would be perfect for our company. It'd be great if instead of shared desktops everyone could hit our simple web app from their own small portable device that just needs charging overnight.
However, I hear conspiracy theories (MS shutting such trends down where it can) and nay-sayers (these are just like eVillas, they were useless a decade ago and their modern reincarnations will be just as useless today) that make me wonder if they'll ever actually come to market. They do seem to be taking their sweet time for such a simple product idea.
Should we be waiting just a little longer, or are smartbooks going to die before they hit the market for whatever reason?
