ASUS Will Make an Android Netbook by Q3 of This Year

If their Android netbook demo hadn't convinced you that ASUS was serious about crossbreeding Google's Android OS with their Eee line, this will: ASUS has become the first company to announce intentions to manufacture an Android netbook, coming by Q3 of this year.

In non-flack terms, that means it'll ship by October, but possibly as early as June. Their announcement was minimal, and reads more as a statement of intention than anything else. Will it be based on a typical Atom/Intel Eee PC platform, or look more like the Snapdragon test unit we saw yesterday? How will they adapt Android's interface to suit netbook use, if at all? The questions! They press! [WSJ]
