Is a netbook a type of UMPC?

Terminology can get confusing these days. According to Microsoft who coined the phrase UMPC, the UMPC should meet the following:

Hardware specifications

  • Windows Vista Home Premium OS
  • Approximately 7" diagonal display (or smaller)
  • Minimum 800 x 480 resolution
  • Approximately 2 pounds
  • Integrated touch panel
  • WiFi- and Bluetooth-enabled
So is a netbook a UMPC? Not according to Microsoft.
