It looks like Nokia has already ordered Netbooks from two major Taiwanese OEMs: Compal Electronics and Quanta.
The news comes at about the same time with the announcement of Nokia and Intel’s long-term collaboration for developing new mobile computers – computers which will use the two companies’ most advanced technologies.
The Nokia Netbook made by Quanta should be available sometime after the third quarter of 2009, for an unknown price. It will use an Intel Atom chip.
On the other hand, the Nokia device made by Compal will be a “smartbook” based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor.
Further details are currently missing, but Nokia will probably announce at least one of these new products in the next few months. So, yeah, it looks like will soon see Netbooks with Nokia’s logo on them
