News of the Android operating system taking the world by storm is certainly encouraging to advocates of the operating system, and you ought to know by now that Android isn’t just on smartphones and tablets – it is also part of the netbook DNA. Someone apparently spotted a Rockchip RK2918-powered netbook that which runs off the Android OS, so that’s something different from the rest of the crowd.
This netbook is powered by a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor that plays nice with Adobe Flash as well, where it resembles a cheap clone of a Nokia device visually, but that’s not what we’re covering today. It doesn’t seem to be as polished as you would like, since a virtual keyboard appears when you want to type something – which is pointless since there is no touchscreen capability on this 10.1″ netbook.
Perhaps this is just an experiment that has gone wrong, but we do hope to see future versions of this netbook be a whole lot more refined – and ready for the masses, of course.
