DigiTimes is reporting that a 15-inch Acer ultrabook with a fiberglass body has been in production since mid-March. The form factor would be a departure from what we’ve considered ultrabooks so far — most have been 13-inch laptops with aluminum bodies, though the category is getting increasingly nebulous with devices like Acer’s own Ultra M3. There’s no word on the specifications of the device, but it’s reportedly being manufactured by Pegatron at a fairly high volume, with shipments of around 100,000 units per month.
The launch of Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors is expected to stimulate a rise in global ultrabook sales, so it’d make sense for Acer to order more units than usual — especially if they’re as specced-out as Asus’s new…

Digitimes is reporting that both Acer and ASUS are currently in somewhat of a holding pattern in regards to their new laptops. The report says that both companies are holding off on releasing new laptops until current inventory is depleted, and demand has built up for new models. This would mark somewhat of a new strategy for the companies, which have, in the past, often added new models so quickly that choosing between them could be difficult. Intel is also expected to release the dual core Atom N550 CPU in the third quarter, which would lead us to expect a slew of new netbooks, so we’ll see if the companies can resist kicking out a few new models.

PC chief of HP Taiwan, Monty Wong, has told daily trade paper Digitimes that Palm’s WebOS will be used on “smartphones and tablets”, a category that would include an HP Slate. According to Digitimes, the newly-acquired OS will only be used for these touch-based devices. Netbooks and other computers will continue to use desktop operating systems.
Wong said that “HP will announce more details after the completion of the Palm acquisition at the end of July.” So far Digitimes offers no other details (the story is classed as a “snapshot”, and should be added to shortly), but the move to use WebOS on slates and phones is really an obvious one. After all, why buy Palm otherwise?
Between Android, the iPad and now HP’s tablet plans, this newly-reinvigorated device category is white-hot. Apple has proved that people are willing to buy a simple, easy to use device that frees them from babysitting a full PC OS. HP clearly sees its mobile future as a vertical system, just like Apple’s, instead of just churning out commodity PC hardware for Microsoft to slap Windows into. The next stage of the computer’s evolution is well under way.

Put on your conductor hat and overalls, because it’s time to take the rumor train to Atomsville. DigiTimes is reporting that Intel is cooking up another new dual-core Atom processor, this one called the N550, and that netbooks using it will have to feature at least 1GB of DDR3 memory and 32GB of SSD or 250GB of platters. That’s hardly revolutionary, but slightly more interesting is an allowance for netbook makers using the chip to bump up their maximum screen size to 12.1-inches. That’s a sizeable increase over the current 10.2-inch maximum and could further blur the line between net and note… assuming this train reaches the station.

The T20 is capable of projecting VGA images up 42inches. The T30 is reported to only support the iPod and iPhone at this time but it would be a good idea to standardize the plug, or offer a dongle for other media devices such as the Zune. The T30 uses RGB LED, not the standard white LED backlighting, is capable of projecting images up to 50inches, and comes with AV-in recording.
