Increased costs in Windows 7 as compared to Windows XP may force netbook vendors to  consider keeping their Intel Atom N270 and N280-based netbooks to use Windows XP and will not offer upgrades to Windows.

Negotiations are going on between first tier netbook vendors and Microsoft, in hope to bring costs down for Windows 7. Netbook vendors will be focusing on only adopting Windows 7 in their next generation Atom N450-based netbooks.

In addition from the source, Intel plans to announce the single-core Atom D410 and dual-core Atom D510 for nettops in October 2009 replacing the current Atom 230 and 330.

Intel’s Atom 230 and 330 will be phased out in the Q1 2010.
