We’ve already mentioned the rumor that Intel is planning on delaying the release of their Pine Trail platform until early next year.
Among possible reasons for this delay may be to prevent damage to netbook sales for the year 2009. There is also worry that the introduction of the PIne Trail platform may negatively impact the sale of ultra-thin netbooks.
A third possible cause for this delay of the release date is that up until now, Intel has only received limited demand from consumers for their Pine Trail platform.
The price of the Pine Trail processor is roughly $64, higher than that of the currently predominant Intel Atom N270 processor that many netbooks are equipped with.
We’re already halfway through the year and 2010 is approaching quickly, so make sure to check back to our site often for the latest updates about this development.
