Apple Netbooks coming soon? – Foxconn to build Apple netbook

Steve Jobs once said “We don’t know how to make a $500 computer that’s not a piece of junk.” This statement was not much liked by a lot of netbook users as we ourselves know how capable these machines are. The latest rumors point towards Foxconn Electronics, which is supposed to make the Apple’s first netbook. Most of the rumors point towards a device having 10-inch screen and running Mac OS X. It is also supposed to have WiFi and built in 3G to use the cellular networks for Internet surfing.

According to About.com, there may be two ways in which the Apple Netbook may be retailed:

  • via Apple and its retail stores
  • via cellular providers

By selling via cellular providers, they will be able to sell the netbook with small initial price just the way they sell iPhone and then letting the consumer pay according to the plan chosen by him
