Chinese electronics maker Haier had an unnamed, unexplained netbook on display at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain last week. Engadget reports that there were no specs, release date information, or other details available. Just a netbook sitting in a display surrounded by mobile internet devices and cellphones.

The notebook appears to have a decent sized keyboard with large shift keys on the left and right sides. But there’s certainly a bit of room in the case on either side of the keyboard, whichmakes me wonder why the keyboard isn’t a little larger. And judging by the inclusion of a Windows key instead of a Home button, I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that this puppy will ship with Windows XP.

  1. I really like how the space bar actually says ‘space’ on it… really informative. Thanks for that Haier, I was bewildered by that gigantic blank bar.

  2. those keyboards keep reminding me of those 70-80’s membrane keyboards…

  3. I have one of their refrigerators – which has been trouble free for years.
    No idea if that qualifies them to build Net-Books. 😉
