Alpha 680 Android Powered Netbook Picture Leaked

Hp, Dell and Asus are just some of the big names that have been rumored to be releasing Android powered netbooks in the near future. However a Chinese manufacturer name Skytone is the first to have a working prototype for all to see.

The system specifications state an ARM11 533Mhz CPU, a 7inch 800x480 display, 128MB of DDR2 RAM (option to expand to 256), a 1GB solid state drive (also expandable up to 4GB), slot for SD cards, 2 USB ports, Wi-Fi, keyboard and touchpad.

The unit is very compact at only 8.5 inches long and 6 inches wide, 1.2inches thick and weighing a tiny 1.5lbs, it smaller than the average netbook and larger than a mobile phone. Expected to launch in Q3 2009 its sure to grab plenty of attention. Estimates at this stage put RRP at $250.
