The Android packing HP AirLife 100

hp_compaq_airlife_100_smartbook_3With all the talk about tablets, it’s easy to forget the tablet’s older brother, the netbook.  While netbooks can be a bit more limited on resources, as compared to a full-on laptop, they can offer some amenities that new-fangled tablets can’t…like a keyboard.

The HP AirLife 100 offers that and much more.  Our very own Dustin Earley spotted this netbook a few months back.  Details were a bit sketchy then, but now we know a little more.  For starters, rumors of the 10.1″ resistive touchscreen, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, and Android OS are true.  What else is it packing?  How about 16GB, 92% size keyboard, wireless photo printing, GPS navigation and a 3G broadband connection.

The AirLife 100 will be available in Europe and Latin America, sometime this spring, through Telefonica brands.  Pricing and US availability unknown.
