HTC 'carefully looking' into netbook category, wants to add 'unique value'

During the frenzy that was the HD2 launch, he quipped that his company was still "carefully looking into [the netbook] category and how it can be part of that," noting that nothing was official yet due to its desire to really add "unique value" rather than punching out another "me-too" machine.
