Another Day, Another Netbook Wants to Run Android

Engadget has a mock up of a proposed future Android powered netbook. It looks beautiful but it is completely non-functional at this point. If they manage to pack the power this netbook claims (a TI OMAP3 processor running at up to 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, a 2.5 hard drive or SSD, and an 8.1 inch screen) in a tiny 1.76 pound package at a reasonable price, it will be compelling product even if Android isn't up to snuff. It's a good bet that five minutes after this machine comes out that someone will try to intall Ubuntu or Windows on it. Still, this machine is so early in the planning stages that it is unlikely to come out any time soon—if it comes out at all.
