HP Compaq AirLife 100: Specs no Surprise

Just last year when computer makers used to launch a new netbook we all paid attention, this is not happening in 2010. So the announcement of the HP Compaq AirLife 100 and the fact that it runs on Google Android OS will be lost in all the hot iPad and other tablet news.

Looking closely at the specs, Engadget admits that none of them come as any surprise. I cannot help but fear that the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is unpowered to run a netbook — this is the same processor used in the soon to be released HTC DROID Incredible on the Verizon carrier.

This 10-inch netbook also comes with 16GB of flash storage and 512MB of RAM, so it not going to light up any benchmark tests. What this small portable computer is, is cheap, and that will be its strongest point. Engadget fears that the HP Compaq AirLife 100 will not have access to Google’s Android Market Place.

Below is a list of the main specs:

  • 10.1″ diagonal backlit TFT resistive touch screen (1024 x 600 WSVGA)
  • 16GB Solid State Drive
  • 28 Wh typical Li-Polymer battery
  • 512MB RAM, 512MB Flash memory
  • Android OS (with “Compaq touch experience”)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 1 GHz CPU
  • SD slot supporting up to 32GB, Micro-USB port, Bluetooth and 802.11b/g WiFi
