Dell making an Android Netbook?

It seems like Dell are now working on an Android Netbook. The netbook mentioned was the Dell Mini Inspiron 910 and this information was dropped by Bsquare who are porting Adobe Flash Lite to the new Android Netbook… shortly after the press release coming out it was removed from the site. Luckily, it wasn’t removed quickly enough for people to not notice 🙂

Netbook and Nettop computers offer the functionality and efficiency of traditional laptops, but with lighter weight and better portability. Research firm Gartner estimates that worldwide shipments of netbooks will increase by 50 percent to 7.8 million units in 2009, while overall computer sales are expected to decline. Industry analysts also predict that Android will gain traction on smart devices, such as the ultra-portable Dell Mini Inspiron 910, which are used in a range of industries.

No doubt, more details will follow.

    Android is no way ready to be an OS for a computer; it’s still at that awkward 1.0 version phase, and has a lot of little bugs and issues.
