Video: Adobe showcases new Flash 10.1 on Nexus One

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 5, 2010

No word yet on whether this will be exclusive to 2.1, but we have to think that someone will be able to port it when the time comes.  The only other question is, how will browsing the web with [...]

Acer A1 Liquid

According to French blog, Mobinaute, Acer France unofficially confirmed that the Acer Liquid A1 will be updated to Android 2.0 in March 2010.

Qualcomm shows ASUS Eee PC running Android

by: Michael OrylJune 1, 2009

According to the IDG News Service, Qualcomm has begun showing off an ASUS Eee PC netbook that is running on a new Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with the Android OS at the Computex show today in Taiwan.

Qualcomm is calling the device a “smartbook.”  The device is larger than a smartphone, of course, yet smaller than a typical netbook since Qualcomm’s compact 1GHz Snapdragon CPU requires no fans or heat sinks to operate properly.  This is the first ASUS netbook to use a non-Intel processor, and Qualcomm’s snapdragon CPU is based on the same ARM core architecture that most smartphone use today.
