There seems to be an awful lot of excitement these days about NetBooks – small (miniaturized?) notebook computers that provide users with enough power and features to surf the Web, check e-mail, do word processing, edit photos, etc.
I’m personally not in the market for a new laptop but if a computer maker was looking to seize a market niche, it would be interesting to see someone create a BlogBook – a notebook designed and aimed at bloggers.
It would come with Firefox pre-installed with some cool plugins (e.g. Zemanta), a blog publishing tool (Microsoft Live Writer), a user-friendly photo-editing tool, a publishing tool such as Digsby, perhaps a FTP client, and a 30-day free account for Boingo.
The BlogBook would be the perfect computing companion for people who wants a lightweight, powerful machine to blog/do social media on the go.
So, what do you think? Would there be enough of a market to make a BlogBook viable?
Update: Walter Mossberg has a story on how the NetBook is coming into its own. Maybe some smart NetBook maker will let people order customized versions to meet their needs be it blogging, Web surfing, e-mail, photography, travel. David Zatz has jumped on the NetBook bandwagon by buying a My Wind that will serve two purposes: a mobile blogging platform and portable video player.
