CES 2010: HP's Concept Android-Powered Netbook

Fresh out of Vegas,  Engadget is reporting on an HP Mini Android Netbook. The unit is is powered by a Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm and is running an active installation of Android (1.5 or 1.6) with a 10 inch touch responsive screen to interact with the platform.

While fanboys may rejoice over this (me being one of them), the Engadget reviewer gives the impression that the unit was simply vanilla, and said that there is a lot of work to be done with it still.  This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but this is merely a concept device.

I for one am excited to see hardware developers taking Android seriously, and would love to see some slick netbooks running our beloved Android.
