I thought the Compaq brand had all but seen the final nail in the coffin.
Today, word has slipped out that HP will launch a 10.1-inch touchscreen computer under the brand called the Airlife 100. It will include a 10.1-inch touchscreen, a 16GB SDD, 3G connectivity, WiFi, the Android OS platform and be supported by the 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, though that last piece of info is apparently still unconfirmed. The Airlife’s battery will be good for up to 12 hours of use or up to 10 days of standby, but we all know that’s assuming very unlikely conditions (screen at 30% and one app open).
The Airlife 100 will launch in partnership with Telefonica and be offered at a subsidized rate in Europe and Latin America.
