Imagine running Google Android on a small netbook. Feels marvelous, isn’t it ? This is going to be turned into reality, very soon. ASUS demoed its Android powered Eee PC, running on Snapdragon Chipset, by Qualcomm.
Qualcomm calls it the ultrathin netbook a “smartbook”. It consumes extremely low power. So, it requires no cooling, hence it is a fanless device. This contributes to its thin built.
Here’s the video showing the “smartbook” :
Lets just hope that this “smartbook” paves the way for many more netbooks in the Android world.
