Compaq’s Android-based Airlife 100 Announced


HP has announced a partnership with Telefonica for their brand spankin’ new Airlife 100.  The smartbook (half smart phone, half netbook) is will offered with carrier subsidy in Europe and Latin America as part their mobile broadband service.  Naturally, this thing has Android under the hood, or we wouldn’t be talking about it. 

We’re actually pretty stoked by the device as it seems like Android might port to a netbook rather well after all.  Specs include a rumored 1GHz Snapdragon chip, 16GB SSD memory, 12hr battery, WiFi, and 3G.  The 10.1-inch touchscreen seems highly responsive, based on the video below.  We’d love to see this hit the US under the Mini brand with a data plan along the lines of what the iPad has with AT&T.
