Intel Sends Netbook App Store to Select Retailers

Paul Lilly

Given that Intel's Atom processor is nearly ubiquitous with netbooks, it's fair to say the world's largest chip maker has a vested interest in seeing the netbook sector survive the emerging tablet era. To make sure that happens , Intel put its AppUp store in the hands of CompUSA , TigerDirect , and Best Buy Canada .

The AppUpSM center has nearly 2,000 free and paid apps to play around with running the gamut from social networking to gaming, productivity, travel, and the like. And just as Microsoft did with games for Windows Phone 7, all apps in the AppUpSM center include a try-before-you-buy feature.
