Remember that Foxconn netbook that hit the FCC a few days ago? It looks like Sylvania is going to rebrand it and sell it under its name in the US. At least that’s my best guess as to what’s going on based on the fact that there’s a new set of documents on the FCC web site showing the Foxconn SZ900/SZ901 with Sylvania branding.

You can’t see the Sylvania name on the laptop itself in the external photos. But the label describes the netbook as a Sylvania SYNET51601X. I’m pretty sure that’s the FCC ID, not the model name. Because somehow I just can’t see Sylvania coming out with a netbook with a name that difficult to remember.

“Hey, did you get a new netbook?”

“Sure did.”

“What kind?”

“A Sylvania SYNET5…. I don’t know, it’s just a netbook, OK?!?!”

You can check out the label photo after the break.
