Late last year CherryPal introduced a $99 netbook, showing those OLPC folks how it’s done… cheaply. While the CherryPal Africa netbook may not have the large screen, keyboard, or durability of the OLPC XO Laptop, it only costs about half as much.
When CherryPal launched the mini-laptop last year it only ran Windows CE or Linux. Now the company has added a Google Android version to the mix. It’s called the CherryPal Asia.
The new model has a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, a 533MHz ARM9 ARM Cortex A9-based processor, 2GB of storage, and 256MB of RAM.It runs Google Android 1.6 and has 3 USB ports.
CherryPal will also offer a larger version with a 10.1″ display for $148.
