Looks like Qualcomm isn't so good at not talking about future products. This morning they were chatting up a new mini laptop they were awfully proud of -- running on Linux, clocking in at around $299, and definitely meant as competition for the EEE PC (and manufactured by Inventec, if you must know). However, during the conversation, the chipmaker hinted that Linux might not be the ideal OS for the platform. In fact, Qualcomm says Windows Mobile 7 key for mini-laptops:
Microsoft Windows Mobile 7, which is made for chips used in mobile phones, will be more laptop friendly than older versions of Windows Mobile, said Luis Pineda, senior vice president at Qualcomm, on the sidelines of a news conference in Taipei.
