Skytone Alpha 680 Android Netbook in Video: Only Pretty Fast!


Bookmark and Share

I love Google Search engine and I like Google chrome because, they are simple, handy, easy to use and pretty fast. Google Andriod is identical with last two Google’s products; it is simple easy to use and fast. For this reason I was so curious to see how Google Android OS which was made for mobile phones work on netbooks!

Well you can see the two videos after the break and experiment your first impression of this OS on a ARM- powered Skytone Alpha 680 netbook.

Well, unlike the nice impression that Google chrome had on me, I didn’t feel the same about Android running on a netbook.

Undoubtedly, the OS pretty fast. It is running on un-powered Skytone Alpha 680 netbook but it is much faster than any Windows-based netbook!

However, Android is an OS mobile phone on this netbook yet. It doesn’t act like an OS made for a computer. While watching the video, I just felt that I was watching the functionality of a smartphone with big 7-inch Touchscreen!

The big problem I felt immediately was that the presenter was able to run only one app. But on PC we need to run different apps at the same time.

In the end, I think the OS is not ready for netbooks yet but it has a bright future if like other Linux operating systems, it offers plenty of useful applications that computer users need to get.

This netbooks is priced at $250. Well yet this netbook is not cheap because, first of all Android is a free OS and the android on this netbook only provided very limited apps. This netbooks features only 7-inch display and ocmes with very short size 128MB of RAM, and 4GB of flash storage. Even the netbooks is as heavy as 1.5 lbs.

you can get a pretty 8.9-inch Acer Aspire One A150 running on windows with the price tag of $324.00 at Buy.com and operate standard computing like surfing, checking e-mail and using your SKype at the same time easily.

Well, Alpha 680 is not the only android-based netbook and surely at computex we will same many netbooks running on Android. At that time we can judge this OS better.
