We know that Dell's Mini-line of netbooks is particularly versatile in terms of the different OS's it can run. We also know that our own Android OS is also versatile in terms of the different devices it can be ported to. What we didn't know is that Dell themsevles are testing out multiple OS's--Android included--to see what works best on their netbook line. In the video above, Dell's Doug Anson shows the Dell Mini 10v running three different OS's--one of them is Android 1.5 Cupcake.
Does this mean that Android is going to pop up onto a Dell Mini? Well, nothing is for certain yet but at least you know that Dell is interested in our favorite smartphone OS. In fact, Doug Anson said that Android is a "small and snappy OS" and that it runs "fairly nicely".
We still don't know what to think of Android and netbooks. On one hand we're excited about the potential but on the other, we're not sure a non-touch based solution for Android is desirable. We're very interested in hearing what you guys think about it, so let us know in the comments!
