HP's first ARM based smartbook, the Compaq AirLife 100 running Android, which showed up at this year's CES and Mobile World Congress, became more official with a dedicated page on
HP's US website.
The product description and specifications are not exhaustive, but reveal some interesting information on hardware and software. The AirLife 100 has a 10.1" diagonal backlit TFT resistive touchscreen, is equipped with a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 processor, 512MB RAM, 512MB Flash memory, 16GB (15GB user available) internal storage, and a 28 Watt-Hour Li-Polymer battery.
The operating system is referred to as Compaq touch experience powered by Android and offers features such as Email, calendar and contacts access and synchronization, Web browser, music player, webcam recorder, NDrive navigation with GPS, and the Quickoffice document handler that works with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe PDF files.
There is no information on pricing and launch date yet, but the fact that the AirLife 100 appeared on HP's US site and its support for WiFi and 3G connectivity suggest that it may be offered in the United States by a mobile carrier.
