Venturebeat had an opportunity to have an interview with the CEO of Nvidia. He told them that they are very optimistic about Intel allowing the netbook vendors and manufactures to use the Ion platform along with their Atom processors.
We also personally feel that use of Ion platform will open new fields and areas which have so far been beyond the scope of Netbooks like watching HD videos (1080p). The main boost will be seen among the consumers who yearned more from their PMPs. By using Ion, they will be able to play some great games and will be able to watch movies in HD format.
