Apple to Unveil Netbooks Next Month?

The MacWorld Conference and Expo just few weeks away, and according to an article of Computer World, it’s likely that Apple will unveil 2 netbooks in the Expo. The netbooks are likely to be an Apple-controlled “closed system” where software is delivered via the App Store, device restore is done from iTunes, backup is available through an optional online service, most likely MobileMe, and peripheral and add-on choices will be limited.

This is not confirmed though, and is just the prediction of Ezra Gottheil from Technology Business Research Inc.

“Citing evidence that included the gloomy economy, climbing sales of the least-expensive laptops and comments CEO Steve Jobs made in October, Gottheil said Apple would show a pair of netbooks at January’s conference, then as it did two years before with the iPhone, put it on the market midyear.”
