Apple creating a netbook?

There are rumors that Apple might be in the process to create a netbook – A wireless internet access device with a touchscreen. Allegedly, the device will be bigger than the iPhone and smaller than a macbook. No official word from Apple yet, however, upon asking in the Apple quarterly earnings call, Steve Jobs said that “there are not a lot of them getting sold”, and “Apple’s entrance into that category is the iPhone”. Later he admitted that “Apple is going to wait and see how the category evolves” and further said “we’ve got some pretty interesting ideas if it does evolve”.

Apparently, an undisclosed search engine is claiming that it is getting traffic from such device. The company spotted web visits from an unannounced Apple product with a display somewhere between an iPhone and a MacBook.

Similar traffic was detected from the iPhone’s browser before it was announced. This probably means that the Apple’s QA team is testing the device.

However, it is all rumor at this point. So do not get goose bumps yet.
