| China-based HiVision is readying an Android-
| based "PWS700CA" netbook with a 600MHz 
| Rockchip ARM9 processor and a 7-inch, WVGA 
| touchscreen, and according to one preview, 
| it's likely to sell for under $100. HiVision 
| also recently introduced a Linux-based 
| "PWS700B" netbook, as well as an "EB-0600S" e-
| reader, says the company.


ARM boss forecasts mass migration to netbooks

| ARM CEO Warren East believes that netbooks 
| will come to dominate the PC market - and it 
| won't be that long before it happens.
| "Although netbooks are small today â maybe ten 
| per cent of the PC market at most â we believe 
| over the next several years that could 
| completely change around and that could be 90 
| per cent of the PC market," PC Pro says he 
| says.



ARM: our netbooks will fly with or without Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| ARM chief executive Warren East has claimed
| that netbooks could swallow 90% of the PC
| market, in an exclusive interview with PC Pro.
| The British chip design firm, which is the
| biggest rival to Intel's dominant Atom
| processors in the netbook space, claims the
| low-budget laptops could transform the PC
| market. And East says the chip firm will
| succeed "with our without" Windows support for
| its processors.


ARM processors to overtake Intel in mobile devices by 2013?

ARM Seen as a Threat to Intel on the Mobile Front

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite the current developments and the latest
| advancements in x86 chips power efficiency,
| analysts seem to think that, even though Intel
| currently controls the netbook market with its
| new Atom chips, this dominance may be short
| lived. ABI Research suggests that the ARM
| architecture may make a strong incursion into
| this segment, likely taking away most of the
| mobile market share from Intel's units.
