First Atom-powered Android netbook debuts

,----[ Quote ]
| Acer and Amazon announced pre-sales for the 
| first Android-powered netbook running on an 
| Intel Atom. Acer's Aspire One AOD250-1613 
| netbook offers a 10.1-inch display, 
| gesture-enabled touchpad, and a dual-boot 
| system in which Android handles 18-second 
| boot-ups, enabling users to seamlessly 
| switch between Android and Windows, says 
| the company.


Five reasons to buy an Android laptop...

,----[ Quote ]
| The arrival of products like the Archos 5 
| media tablet and now the dual-booting Acer 
| Aspire One D520 are likely the beginning of 
| more and more Android-based machines 
| arriving on our shelves. The mobile version 
| of the OS hasn't quite got going just yet 
| and doesn't do the whole advertising job on 
| behalf of Google computers at this stage 
| but, just because the jury's still out for 
| the main body of the public, it doesn't 
| necessarily mean that an Android-running 
| laptop isn't the way to go. So, is it worth 
| chancing fame, fortune and street cred as 
| an early adopter or Android PCs a fad worth 
| giving a miss?



Android Application Development

| That said, warts and all I found this to be a
| helpful way to get my feet wet with Android. I
| really look forward to future versions as I
| think just a little more time and work will
| move this from my 'good' list to my 'great'
| list. Making things a little tighter and
| cleaning up the few typos and errors would
| certainly make this an 8 instead of an 7,
| which is really substantial in my mind. I'm no
| super developer and I need stuff like this,
| that can take things a little more slowly and
| make it all clear. I think this guide is great
| for those of us in that category as long as
| the reader is o.k. with hopping to external
| sources for the information they'll need to
| get the newer tool set working.


MIPS joins Android consortium

| Processor manufacturer MIPS Technologies has joined the

Five Features We Want to See in Android

,----[ Quote ]
| The most exciting part of our interview with Mozilla
| Mobile VP Jay Sullivan was when he mentioned how
| Fennec, a Firefox-based mobile browser (that might land
| on Android someday), will give Firefox users the
| ability to sync browser history, passwords, bookmarks,
| or even the last set of tabs opened. Google can likely
| go beyond these basics, and should. The only thing
| better than a fast and snappy browser is one that's a
| simple extension of your already-snappy desktop
| browser.
