The Wabook ARM-based mini-laptop isn’t the first $100 netbook to hit the streets in China. But it’s one of the best looking I’v eseen. Typically these dirt cheap models have 7 inch displays and incredibly cramped keyboards. But the Wabook netbook has a roomy 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display making it look like virtually every other netbook released in the last two years.
On the other hand, there’s a reason it’s cheap. It doesn’t have an Intel Atom processor and it doesn’t run Windows.
Instead, the mini-notebook has a 300MHz ARM-based VIA 8505 chip, 128MB of RAM, and 1GB of flash storage. It runs Windows CE or Google Android and has an 1800mAh battery which is only good for about 2 hours of run time. On the bright side, the machine weighs less than 1.9 pounds. Oh yeah, and it sells for about $100 in China.

What about a Linux OS other than Android?
Android runs off Linux base properties, of course there are tons of different Linux programs. The newest to hit a UMPC or Netbooks is Linux Ubuntu 10 Netbook Edition. Esy install and doesnt require much either run the ISO on a cd or USB drive.
The Coby $80 Windows CE looks better with a 600mhz CPU. As for Android, all of these devices are crippled. None of them have the blessing of using the Android market place which negates the purpose of these machines. Not to mention, they all run un-optimized Android 1.6
