There’s plenty of non-Intel news going around lately. This time, it’s Quanta with a new smartbook which marries Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor with Google’s Android OS. The demo video reveals 3 USB 2.0 ports, a mini-HDMI connector, microSD reader, and combination microphone/headphone jack.
The battery looks to be fairly small – perhaps a 3-cell – and it doesn’t appear as though there is any access to the system’s internals. Keep in mind, though, that this is a prototype and not a working device.
In terms of its thickness, this thing is about on par with Sony’s Vaio X – though it likely won’t be in the same zip code when it comes to price. Heck, it won’t even be on the same continent.
