Android Tablets and Netbooks at Computex '09 [VIDEO]

computexComputex 2009 seemed to be more about netbooks and smaller devices and less about traditional computers and laptops this year.  With the global economy limping along, the trend is to go cheaper wherever possible.  As we all know, nothing costs less than free, which is why we’re seeing Android showing up more and more.  That, and it’s a totally viable option for many portable devices.

Two items we came across from this year’s show that we liked are the Kinpo tablet and the GNB GL-750 Netbook. The Kinpo tablet runs using a Freescale i.MX51 chip on a 7″ WVGA display while the GNB device straddles the line between UMPC and netbooks.

The GNB has a Freescale i.MX31 processor at 533MHz, an 800×480 resolution touch screen, 3 USB 2.0 ports, 4-in-1 card reader, ethernet port, and up to 8GB SSD.

Does anyone else find it ironic that most of the working prototype devices we see running Android are not phones?
