On the inside of this lovely looking tablet is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor, a 3G modem with SIM slot, a user-accessible microSD card slot, an internal microSD slot for on-board storage and/or the Android OS, a WiFi chipset, and a 1,530 mAh battery.

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 5, 2010

Today, amongst a barrage of Nexus One announcement news, Adobe demonstrated its Flash 10.1 player on the very device receiving all of the attention.  Due to the Snapdragon processor and Android 2.1 OS, the demo actually runs surprisingly well.  As you will see in the video after the jump, this demonstration is professionally put together by Adobe itself and is unlike the many “hack” or trick videos that are floating around the internet involving Flash on a mobile device.

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.
