Asus: What will be the next netbook?

,----[ Quote ]
| Smartbook manufacturers will seek to minimise 
| the cost of the devices by using a 
| lightweight OS, such as Android or Google's 
| forthcoming netbook OS Chrome, that require a 
| modest amount of processing power and memory 
| to run, she said.



Asus choosing between Chrome and Android

Google Chrome âGoats Teleportedâ Easter Egg for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The folks at Google and in-fact lots of other
| major companies have a knack for hiding Easter
| eggs within their products. We have covered
| several such Easter Eggs in the past.
| However, we can across another Easter Egg in
| Google Chrome where users can teleport goats
| from the Task Manager. This is basically
| available on version of the Linux
| version of Chrome.


Asus and Garmin Make an Android

,----[ Quote ]
| I just love company tie ups, and Asus â
| Garmin is one particular company I am
| interested in. I have yet to see any of
| their old devices first hand, though I am
| aware of the M20 and G60 by reputation. The
| G60 in particular got my attention when it
| launched as it used the Linux mobile
| operating system.


Android to replace Garmin-Asus' current Linux platform

,----[ Quote ]
| At CommunicAsia today, Garmin-Asus showed off its nuvifone G60 and M20
| devices. The former was first developed independently by Garmin and later
| rebadged with the new brand name after the two companies decided to
| collaborate on a line of navigation-focused smartphones.

| The phone runs on Linux (the first smartphone to do so, to the best of my
| knowledge).


Android Garmin Nuvifone in the works

,----[ Quote ]
| The revelation comes following the
| announcement of Google Maps Navigation and we
| can't help thinking that jumping from Linux,
| to Symbian, to Android is a bit of a
| coincidence, particularly given the
| impressive demo we've seen so far.


Garminâs new nuvi 1690 and 1860: specs and more

,----[ Quote ]

| built in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, along with this it has lane assist,
| a traffic receiver and text-to-speech.
