Did The Tablets Kill The NetBooks?

By

  Netbooks are miniture versions of laptops with lesser power processor, less memory, less hard drive space, and no CD or DVD drive. This makes the netbook lighter, easier to carry around, and less energy intensive. These are the Netbook's biggest selling points since Netbooks cost about $300, which is the cost for entry level laptops with more features than the Netbooks.

  The new tablets coming out from HP, RIM (Black Berry), Samsung, and even the upcoming iPad 2 are more powerful and lighter. India and China are planning to build tablet clones for about $100. Is this the end of netbooks?

I have an iPad and I think the future for tablets is strong.  Where I never carried my laptop around with me, I always carry my laptop.  If the HP, RIM, and Samsung tablets are as fast and useful as the iPad I think everyone will be using them within 2 years.
