Qualcomm has been showing off its Snapdragon chipset for netbooks and mobile devices for a few months in no-name prototype devices. Now Wistron is demonstrating a Snapdragon powered netbook that actually has a name: The Wistron Firstbook.
The Firstbook runs Linux, has a super-widescreen display that helps keep the overall profile of the netbook small, and which makes it look like a Sony Vaio P. Hopefully it won’t carry the same high pricetag as the Vaio P. The Firstbook has integrated 3G wireless capabilities.
It’s still possible this netbook could ship under a different name – or it might not ship at all. But Wistron was showing it off with some other ARM-based devices at Mobile World Congress in February. You can check out a video after the break (the Firstbook section is near the end)
