Yesterday, we heard that Acer and Asus might coast along with their current netbook lineups until next year. Other players could be busier, though. DigiTimes writes that HP has enlisted Quanta and Inventec to manufacture three new netbooks for it this year.
Quoting Taiwanese industry sources, the report says Quanta will kick off production of an 11.6" netbook next month, followed by a 10.1" device "at the end of 2009." Inventec, meanwhile, should start making a new revision of HP's existing 10.1" netbook in late September.
Right now, HP's Mini series includes two models, both with 10.1" 1024x576 displays, Atom processors, 1GB of RAM, and low-capacity solid-state drives. Shoppers can configure them with more storage, more RAM, and bigger batteries, among other things.
Acer recently introduced an 11.6" netbook with a 1366x768 display resolution and a still-tantalizing price tag. The Aspire One 751 can be had at Newegg right now for as little as $349.99, and we'll be bringing you a review soon.
