Android is coming to a netbook sooner than expected.
The first Netbook that will use Google's operating system will cost $259 and is scheduled to roll out over the coming three months, according to Computerworld report.
The Alpha 680, as the laptop is known as, is going through final testing at Guangzhou Skytone Transmission Technologies, Skytone co-founder Nixon White told the site.
The Netbook will have a 533MHz ARM 11 CPU and sports a 7-inch LCD screen, keyboard, touchpad, and built-in Wi-Fi, according to the report.
The Alpha 680's 2-cell battery will last only two to four hours while surfing the Internet, much lower than the expected 12 hours.
Android is a Linux-based operating system originally designed for cell phones, but now experts are predicting that the open-source operating system could be used on other devices, such as the emerging low-cost laptops known as Netbooks.
