Samsung Plans To Stop Producing Netbooks

Posted Nov 27, 2011

Samsung Electronics is planning on ending the manufacturing of netbook computers (10.1-inches) to focus on ultrabooks and ultraportables (11.6-12 inches). This is a statement from a leaked Samsung memo obtained by French blog (Blogee): “Following the introduction of our new strategy in 2012, we will discontinue our 10.1-inch (netbook) product range in Q1 2012, in favor of ultraportables (11.6 and 12 inches) and ultrabooks to be launched in 2012.”
