CeBIT 2010: Coby Makes $85 Netbook-ish Thing

It looks like tablets and the mini-netbooks that shall-not-be-named might be rolling towards a bit of a price war. After HiVision's $100 tablet was announced, Coby felt secure in bringing up their $85 mini-netbook (Netbooked).

This little budget-gadget has a 624 MHz Marvell processor, 7” display with a 10” bezel, and the Windows CE operating system. If you wiped the OS and re-installed XP or some Linux distro, I'd be willing to bet you could make this little guy non-terrible to use. Sure, it's going to be slow, but you can afford to get one of these for every room in the house.

Imagine buying 5-6 of these and loading Chrome OS onto all of them. Since all of your personal info is stored in the cloud, these would all be functionally the same devices. You could use these as dirt-cheap portable Internet terminals and scatter them about the house. Never again will you be more than 20 seconds away from the Internet.
