The netbook market still feels a bit like the Wild West. Example: On Monday, companies received the all-clear to continue calling netbooks, well, netbooks. The mobile device company Psion had the rights to the “netbook” trademark, and used the brand with portable computers that it sold many years back. Intel and Dell sought to wrestle the name away from Psion, saying netbook was a generic industry term. This week, Psion and Intel settled their disagreement, with Psion saying it would voluntarily pull its trademark registrations for the term. Of course, just as that naming issue is solved, companies making small computers based on ARM chips have started to call their devices smartbooks. Then there is the software side of things. For months, Intel has found itself in the odd position of both championing and discrediting netbooks, almost all of which run today on the company’s Atom chip.
