Tablet sales affecting netbooks? Seems everyone's been suggesting that lately, from Best Buy
, with much of the blame placed on Apple's iPad for mining the gap
, so to speak. Add Microsoft to that chorus -- specifically GM for Windows Product Management Gavriella Schuster. Referencing the pink netbook sitting between her and Seattle Post-Intelligencer's
Nick Eaton, Schuster said, "These are definitely getting cannibalized... these are really a second device. But they are
getting cannibalized" (SPI's
emphasis, not ours). Given Windows' dominance in the netbooks, she's probably got some hush-hush numbers that color her opinion. Then again, speaking of color, perhaps she just doesn't like pink.
