China Mobile Plans 3G Netbooks With 6 Manufacturers
- 0 Comments
Intel’s recent push to enter the Chinese netbook market is looking like it’s inspiring more partnerships, but this time they’re coming from overseas.
China Mobile Ltd., a NY-listed telecom operator, announced yesterday that it’s going to team up with some PC manufacturers to make TD-SCDMA-enabled 3G netbooks. The manufacturers listed were Lenovo, Founder Technology, Tsinghua Tongfang, Haier Group, Hewlett-Packard, and Dell.
Aside from mobile broadband, nobody seems to know what other specs to anticipate from the partnership’s products. Lenovo, HP, and Dell are all already huge players in the netbook industry, and if they join forces with China Mobile the results could be spectacular.
Aside from that we’re all somewhat in the dark as to the group’s intentions, but it will be exciting to see what new netbooks are delivered along the way.
