The Atom N550 is no longer limited to a maximum screen size of 10”. Digitimes reports that Intel has decided to lift panel size restrictions from their new dual-core chip. The N550 is expected to launch in 2H 2010.

Initially, the restriction of Atom processors to screens under 10” was intended to stop netbooks from horning in on the notebook market. Intel apparently feels that risk is worth the reward of having 11.6” and 12.1” notebooks (and tablets) that can pack a dual-core, low-energy processor. Digitimes isn't a perfectly accurate source, so take this news with a (hopeful!) grain of salt.
