that HP is considering the use of the Android platform for its Netbooks.
"HP has confirmed it is considering Google's Android operating system for use in upcoming netbook computers.
However, the company has not set a time line for deciding whether to offer Android exclusively or as one of several OS options for its products, if at all, according to Marlene Somsak, an HP spokesperson.
"We are studying Android. We want to assess its capabilities," she told LinuxInsider.
If HP decides in favor of using Android, it could well become the first major PC vendor to use Google's OS, currently deployed in smartphones.
