I really hate it when someone takes their trademarks to the extreme. Smartbook AG did this when it pretty much sat back on it haunches letting the term smartbook grow to a common term like netbooks before it started threatening any one uttering the term smartbook with legal action.
After playing internet bully to protect "smartbook", which Qualcomm and other providers say is protected by a trademark of dubious value, the company's latest offering isn't even a smartbook. The machine is called the Logo and is a 1.3kg ultra-thin notebook running an Intel CPU.
The machine has an 11.6-inch screen, CULV Intel CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB HDD, and a 3G modem. Battery life is promised to be 8 hours and the machine runs Windows 7 Home Premium. Pricing is expected at about $952. Here's wishing you a big bag of fail Smartbook AG.
