The netbook revolution may be coming to an end, at least for two manufacturers. Digitimes reports that Hewlett-Packard and Dell have both “significantly” cut back on their investments in 10” netbooks. HP is (reportedly) thinking about pulling out of the 10” netbook game altogether and focusing on AMD 11.6” notebooks.

Netbooks are being reconsidered by HP, Dell, and several other vendors due to the disappointing sales of Pine Trail-based netbooks. Acer, Asustek, and Samsung appear to be doing well with 10-inchers, but they are the only ones. This retreat from the 10” netbook is expected to reduce the willingness of these vendors to launch mini-netbook products.

Please remember to take all of this with a grain of salt. Digitimes makes its fair share of false calls and there has been no independent verification of this rumor.
