Samsung may quit netbook market in 2012

A stray email purporting to be from Samsung suggests that the company may be putting an end to its production of netbooks next year. The email specifically namechecks 10.1-inch devices, saying that the range will be replaced by ultraportables and 'Ultrabooks', the PC equivalent to the MacBook Air. The email, sent to the company's trade partner, reads: "Following the introduction of our new strategy in Q1 2012, we stop the product range in 10.1" (Netbook) in Q1 2012 for the benefit of Ultraportables products (11.6 and 12-inches) and ultrabooks to be launched in 2012."
