unlikely competition.
the atom is too small and low power, too many by volume,and then too cheap which fits netbooks perfectly.
this via dual core is for those wanting to do more on netbooks for a higher cost and less battery life, but laptops are like that. :)

Now if only they could build the damn thing too. I remember the Via Nano being announced and performance benchmarks and stuff.
Better performance than the Atom and such , that's all cool but there's no Nano in sight actually. It's all still based on those old and poor performing Via C7.
Let's say that for some reason manufacturers like the Atom better but still there's the Via produced mini-ITX boards and even in those there's no real sign of the new Nano CPU.
I said this before I wish Via could get their act together and really compete with Intel but to be honest they never seemed to capable of getting their act together and releasing a quality product.
