Eee PC spotted running Android + Qualcomm 1GHz CPU

Posted on Monday, June 01 2009 @ 13:24:06 CEST by

The machine was installed with Google’s upcoming Android operating system and we have to admit, it felt a bit strange on a “Smartbook” (as Qualcomm calls them) of this kind. The operating system is clearly suited for smaller devices and smart phones, but it was nice to get a look at it anyway. Operation was rather smooth and everything worked, albeit just a bit plain.

We asked one of the product managers from Qualcomm to give us a demo of the system. It is based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform which consists of a 1GHz CPU. Because of the platforms “extremely low power consumption”, no cooling is required which allows for ultra thin netbooks. It is capable of playing back 720p video with the current gen chips, and in the future 1080p will be supported with the faster clock processors. Check it out at TweakTown.
