GL 750 netbook caught running on Android

Somehow this GL-750 netbook slipped our radar while we were covering the few million square feet of showfloor at the recently concluded CES, as this 7″ netbook runs on the Google Android operating system. Taiwanese PC maker King Yung is the brains behind this netbook, where you get a rather ancient 533MHz Freescale iMX31 ARM11-based processor accompanied by 128MB RAM and up to 16GB of flash storage, depending on your needs and budgets. Apart from Google’s Android operating system running on it, you can also opt to throw in Windows CE or a lightweight Linux distro built on a 2.6.x kernel if either one is your cup of tea. With the Nexus One boasting a far superior processor, we wonder whether anyone will pick it up assuming a US distributor is interested in marketing it Stateside.
