| While netbooks are becoming more powerful—and are in the throes of evolution, 
| some say—ABI asserts that the more important changes have been at the lower 
| end of the market, and that to create more inexpensive devices, designers are 
| turning to Linux and the Google Android operating system.   
| Research firm Strategy Analytics expects to see the Android mobile operating 
| system take 12 percent of global smartphone shipment market share by 2012, as 
| well as show growth in other device segments, which is already in evidence 
| this year.

| 70-80% the rate of iPhones. Even allowing for margins of error and any
| tendency to talk up such numbers, this suggests a healthy uptake.

Google to market Android netbooks, mobile TV?

,----[ Quote ]
| Rumors have been flying recently that Google is working on a netbook
| implementation of the Linux/Java Android mobile stack, and that it is
| collaborating with Asus to develop an Android-based prototype. Asus has been
| focusing mostly on Windows XP installs for its most recent Intel Atom-based
| Eee PC netbooks. However, its early models helped Linux capture around a
| quarter of the hot netbook market.

| Vodafone and HTC announced the latter's second-generation, all-touchscreen
| Android phone. Scheduled to ship to Vodafone customers in Europe this spring,
| the Android Magic offers HDSPA 3G connectivity, and a slimer profile than the
