Upcoming Laptops: Thin is In

CNET also has an intriguing interview with Anand Chandrasekher, vice president and general manager of the Mobile Platforms Group at Intel. The topic: What to expect in laptops over the next year. It includes an interesting discussion over the Centrino bundle, switching between different types of wireless networks, and how thin we can expect notebooks to go.

There's even some that will feature a smaller second screen, to enable messaging while the laptop is shut down, an intriguing concept. Sad to say that most of the network switching innovation is happening in Asia and Europe (e.g., switching from Wi-Fi band to cellular when you need it -- a nice solution for the road warrior in all of us).
