The first Android Netbook - Skytone Alpha 680

The first Android Netbook - Skytone Alpha 680
So far, most netbooks run either on Windows or Linux. Now here's the first netbook that run on a different OS, Google Android. The netbook model is Skytone Alpha A680 which is manufactured by a Chinese electronic maker. It has a 7-inch, 800 x 480 resolution touchscreen display with a swivel, a 533MHz ARM11 Processor, 128MB RAM, and 1GB flash memory for storage. The specs are much lower than other standard netbooks today, but it's more than enough to run Google Android, which was developed for ARM-based cellphones. Also, the low-end specs means lower price. There's rumor that the price for this machine will be as little as $100.
