Quanta isn't satisfied sitting in the shadows and watching Apple gobble up all of the hype and love and billions of retail dollars. They want their own, Quanta-branded hot product to sell. According to Fudzilla, that product will be a netbook/smartphone hybrid device. It will be a "computer in an iPhone form factor" and sport a 3.5" touchscreen display.

The "netphone" will be able to make and receive voice calls, as well as access the Internet. Whether the calling will work via a VOIP client or through traditional cell networks is unclear. ARM and Qualcomm have both been approached to provide chips for Quanta's new baby. Sadly, that's the extent of our knowledge here. We'll keep an ear out on this one, though.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
