$130 Android Laptop

Posted by – January 14, 2011

Hopeland Digital Corporation of Shenzhen releases this NB-100 10.1″ Android Laptop, powered by the ARM11 Telechips 8902 processor, 256MB RAM, 8GB nand flash, SD card slot, WiFi, it runs Android 2.1 for now, possibly upgradable. What does Google need to do to optimize Android for the Laptop? I think someone just needs to put an ARM Cortex A8 or A9 processor inside (with good fast I/O and memory, enough RAM..) and port a full Chrome browser for it (perhaps just run Chrome OS for ARM) and we’ll be all set. Do you think this type of platform is soon ready to replace $300 netbooks and the $1000 MacBook Air?
