Word on the street may be that Acer and Asus aren’t planning on launching any new mini-laptops until 2010, but HP may be another stories. DigiTimes reports that Taiwanese computer maker Inventec has been tapped to work on an updated 10.1 inch netbook for HP.
There are no details about the new model, but it’s schedueld to begin production at the end of September, which means that it could be scheduled for release in October and outfitted with Windows 7 and/or a next-gen Intel Atom Pineview processor.
DigiTimes says that HP has also hired Quanta to build a new 11.6 inch mini-laptop. It’s not clear whether this machine would be an Intel Atom powered netbook style device, or if it will have a more powerful Intel CULV or AMD Neo processor.
