Mobile Devices Definitions

I was looking for the distinction between Notebook, Laptop, Tablet PC, and Netbooks. Are these just marketing terms or distinctly different classes of mobile devices?

  1. Tablet is self explanatory - keyboard is either missing or virtual -- or it's a laptop where the screen twists right round so the device can be held as a tablet.

    Netbook -- generally smaller format with long battery life -- 10 inch screen, no optical drive, maybe solid state main drive, wifi and/or cellphone internet access.

    Laptop -- the default, though these days often used as a desktop substitute.

    Notebook -- difference between this and laptop vague. Probably down to smaller size.
