Dual Core Atom 330 not yet for netbooks/ laptos

I want to stress the fact that the dual core Atom 330 CPU announced a couple of weeks ago targets only desktop pcs.
The facts: the dual core Atom 330 will be available starting September 21st for the nettops markets (low budget desktops). The news appearing in several blogs stating that the first dual core Atom netbooks will appear in September is IMHO false (see also here). There are some rumors that the newest EEE PC and/or the Gigabyte M912 will host the Atom 330, however these are just rumors. I wouln't be a cent on it.
It is no question that first or late EEE PC, MSI Wind and competition will get a dual core CPU, however I think that now it is too early especially with current prices of 400 Euro and above for a decent 10-inch netbook.
