The SkyTone Alpha 680 has been spotted in the wild, rocking a fire engine paint job.  This model is the current front runner to win the Android netbook launch race.

  • 533 MHz ARM11 CPU
  • 7″ LCD screen(800 x 480)with swivel
  • 128MB DDR2 RAM (up to 256 MB)
  • 1GB SSD drive (up to 4 GB)
  • Wi-Fi, keyboard and touch pad

Google is currently doing a focus group on netbooks to determine what users’ needs are.  Hopefully, whatever features are lacking in Android right now are fixed soon and maybe end up in Donut. What do you guys think of the directional pad and 4 button layout on the screen – Helpful, hindering, or just plain hokey?
