If you're new here, you may first want to read Hello, the introductory page that contains details on what Netbook Era is all about or you may want to check out the netbook buying guide right away or you may simply want to subscribe to the RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

In an interview with CNet Asia, Mike Lazaridis, RIM’s founder, refers to his Blackberry Storm as a netbook. I am sure that by that he means that the smartphone can be used to browse the web and receive emails, two main features of netbooks. However, I don’t think that the Blackberry boss should be comparing his expensive phone device with low cost, mini laptops.

Netbooks are perceived to be cheap laptops while Blackberries are perceived to be premium phones. The Blackberry Storm is more expensive than the average netbook if you really want a proof. I really don’t think that it’s smart from the Mr Lazaridis to be trying to capitalize on the netbook craze by associating his high end product with netbook computers.

Anyway, just my opinion…
