Android lands on the Acer Aspire One D250 netbook

by: Susan ElleryJanuary 16, 2010

Acer recently refreshed its Aspire One D250 netbook, replacing Windows XP with both Windows 7 and Android. Yes, that’s right, Android on a commercially available netbook. The D250 is a true dual boot solution, offering users the ability to boot into Windows 7 or Android during startup. A wonderful idea that, unfortunately, fails due to poor hardware design as the D250 lacks a touchscreen, a critical component that is necessary for Android to operate at its full potential. You can navigate the Android OS using your keyboard and mouse but it is not the same as using your fingers to make selections and interact with the OS. On a positive note, Android boots quickly on the D250 and [...]

Hivision reveal affordable Android netbook

by: James TromansJanuary 13, 2010

Hivision were showing off their new netbook at CES recently, running Android. Hivision specialise in embedded ARM-based laptops. The device in question is a 7’’ netbook and very compact offering an ARM 9 chipset running at 500Mhz. Furthermore, it is affordable. How affordable? Well the guy in the YouTube video after the jump does not seem to be the Hivision representative, but believes the device could run as low as $149 in the supermarkets. Don’t jump onto the bandwagon though as he also says “fantastic and awesome” a little too much, along with “I’m just guessing here”.

The enthusiastic man in the video goes onto pick up a forthcoming Hivision MID device set to land in [...]

Man turns Dell netbook into a Mini 3i Android-powered phone – redfines the term pocketable

by: Susan ElleryDecember 31, 2009

This has to be one of the best mods we have seen in a long time. A man takes apart his Dell Mini netbook and converts it into a functional and rather large Mini 3i mobile phone, complete with the OPhone Android OS. The video of the mod scores a 10 for its complexity, a 10 for its creativity, and a 10 for its musical score. The mod in its entirety is after the break. Enjoy!

The enTourage eDGe, an Android-based e-reader, netbook, multimedia player all wrapped up in one

by: Susan ElleryDecember 4, 2009

Dual-screen devices seem to be on the upswing with Spring Design’s Alex e-book reader, Asus’ Eee-book reader, and the concept Microsoft Courier getting some press recently. Recently brought to our attention is another one of these novel devices, the enTourage eDGge – a dual-touchscreen device that is both an e-reader and a netbook. The enTourage’s most striking feature is its dual display, which is comprised of a 9.7 inch e-ink display with 1200 x 825 resolution and 16 shades of grey and a 10.1 inch color LCD with 1024 x 600 resolution. The e-reader side of the device supports ePub and PDF file formats and allows users to takes notes or create drawings using [...]

NVIDIA to run Windows CE and not Android on Tegra-based Smartbooks, for now

by: James TromansJune 19, 2009


NVIDIA have snuggled up tightly with Microsoft and expressed that they will be working on optimizing Windows CE for Tegra-based “smartbooks” (something between a smarphone and a netbook), as opposed to Android. According to an article over at ComputerWorld, Mike Rayfield from NVIDIA was quite clear and specific about the differences between Android and Windows Mobile, and has clearly taken ‘sides’ – at least for now. We say this because there is also news that NVIDIA is working with Google to accelerate Android when running on Tegra hardware. The downside being that it will take about a year before anything good comes of it due [...]

Video and summary of the GNB netbook/UMPC

by: James TromansJune 9, 2009

GNB Netbook/UMPC

Computex is now coming to an end, but Run SSD have released a video revealing a GNB netbook/UMPC that is really something a bit different. The device is tagged as the ‘750’ and sports a 7-inch touch screen running Google’s Android. It is somewhere between a netbook and even a UMPC as it is super small and super light, weighing only 680g.

Inside, the UMPC offers a solid state drive (SSD), the capacity of which ranges from 2GB to 8GB. Similarly, you can have either 128MB or 256MB of RAM. Combine this with the Freescale i.MX31 CPU and we’re looking at about 2.5 hours of battery life. On the back of the device we find a USB 2.0 [...]

ECS netbook will offer Android

by: James TromansJune 3, 2009

Computex looks like a really good show, and ECS have on display a prototype of their 8.1 inch T800 netbook offering. The prototype device is not in working order, but the build is comparable to what the finished version will be like. It looks wonderful and would appear to resemble the Sony Vaio P a bit. Even though the T800 is a puny 800g (1.76lb) light, it still manages to pack a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive and 512MB of RAM. Our best guess is that the hard-drive may be swapped for an SSD as well. On top of this, the Texas Instruments CPU comes in two flavors: 800mhz and 1ghz.

The video below shows the prototype device, which is alleged to run Android as the operating system. [...]
