If you're interested in Android Netbooks, we may have the first one to get you excited. What you'll see in the embedded video after the jump is an Asus Eee PC 'smartbook' prototype that runs Android on a 1GHz Snapdragon chipset by Qualcomm (as opposed to the typical Intel Atom chip).

What's so cool about this is not just the Android part, it's that this prototype is fanless. The Snapdragon chipset consumes so little power that there's no need for a fan to cool down the computer! Can you imagine the battery life? The thinness?

Check out the video below if you're interested in this cool Asus Eee PC prototype!

Very cool stuff but still I can't wait to install a proper OS for it. The good thing is that Android is Linux based to should make a Linux OS like Ubuntu easy to install.
Android looks nice for a mobile phone but I don't like it for a netbook.
