HTC May Soon Join The Netbook Frenzy

HTC CEO Peter Chou told reporters at the Taiwanese launch of the HTC HD2 that HTC is “carefully looking into [the netbook] category and how it can be part of that”, leading to torrents of speculation about what kind of machine we should look for. Chou has dropped hints about a tablet or MID before, however, so this announcement shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

The CEO noted that HTC would want to add “unique value” to the category before entering. I’ve got to agree – the netbook segment is so flooded with copycats and no-names that it can be painful to wade through it all.

HTC has delivered wireless touchscreen devices before, such as the HTC Shift.
