Ergo Electronics is introducing a new 10 inch netbook in the UK. The GoNote features a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, much like every other netbook released in the last few years.

But under the hood, this £149 ($235 US) mini-notebook is a little different. It has an ARM-based processor, a resistive touchscreen display, and Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system instead of Windows.

There’s a QWERTY keyboard and touchpad, so you can navigate with an on-screen cursor, much as you would on a Windows laptop. But the 2-point multitouch touchscreen makes it easier to interact with Android apps that were designed for touch.

The netbook also features a webcam for video chat, 4 USB 2.0 ports for connecting peripherals, and a mini HDMI port for hooking up an external display. Ther eare also mic and headphone jacks and a micro SD card slot for extra storage.

Ergo’s GoNote netbook is powered by a 1.2 GHz Rockchip RK2918 ARM Cortex-A8 single core processor. It has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage.

The netbook is aimed at students, and includes a copy of Kingsoft Office for creating and editing Microsoft Office-compatible documents. It also includes access to the Google Play Store, which means you can download and run hundreds of thousands of apps on the netbook.

The mini-notebook measures 9.7″ x 6.8″ x 0.9″ and weighs about 2.1 pounds.

According to Ergo Electronics, you should get up to 6 hours of continuous run time while surfing the web over WiFi thanks to the 9000mAh battery. The netbook can get up to a week of standby time.

The RK2918 processor is a budget chip that offers moderate performance at best, but it should be up to the task of performing basic Android tasks. You can find a number of Windows 7-based netbooks with Intel Atom processors for under $300 these days, but few of those feature touchscreens and out-of-the-box support for Android apps.
