Fujitsu And Toshiba Enter North American Netbook Markets

Tuesday is expected to bring an exciting announcement – Fujitsu will be entering the North American netbook market, which it had earlier avoided in favor of European and Australian markets.

Fujitsu M2010

The new M2010 is a Ruby Red clone of just about every other netbook, with Windows XP, a 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM, and a three-cell battery.

The screen size is 10 inches this time around, rather than the 8.9-inch model previously sold in Europe. Senior product director Paul Moore explained why:

“We didn’t bring it to North America because it was an 8.9-inch screen. At that time the feedback we were getting was 8.9 was too small.”

Even Dell is announcing similar feedback, focusing in on bigger netbooks by shutting down its 9-inch Inspiron Mini netbook line.

And Fujitsu isn’t the only one making this announcement. Toshiba is set to join North American markets with its NB205 netbook, an update to the NB200, announced Monday.
