Asus Getting Rid of 8.9-inch Netbooks in 2009

If you like 8.9-inch screens, you might want to get one now. Asus has said that it'll be phasing out that size in 2009, since 10-inch models are dominating the market.

According to Digitimes, Benson Lin, president of Asustek Computer's Asia-Pacific division said that 10-inch models account for 95% of the company's sales. 7-inch models make up the other 5%.

To be honest, I'm surprised 8.9-inches is not a popular option. Maybe I'm just weird, but I always though that screen size hit the sweet spot between fitting into a purse and still having a somewhat usable keyboard. [Digitimes]
