A Netbook by Any Other Name …

The folks over at Liliputing.com are doing a great job reviewing the FCC files and elaborating on every new PC that gets listed. The latest is a series of at least three Foxconn-developed netbooks that are now listed and will likely be packaged for sale in the US.

What they have further uncovered is another potential reseller of the ODM’s netbooks — Sylvania, which the evidence suggests is going to rebrand the Foxconn SZ900/SZ901 under its name in the US.

Just a heads up in the event the company that manufactures your PC matters to you.
