Pegatron-branded Asus Neo smartbook with Android and Tegra 2 showcased at CES
Asus isn’t limiting its options in the mobile computing space with Windows and Intel Pinetrail Atom processors. Showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is this Pegatron-branded lightweight pseudo-laptop called the Neo, and it runs Android with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 driving the display for high-definition media enjoyment. The outer appearance pretty much screams “netbook” but it’s been deemed as “spectacularly thin and light.” In addition, it runs on the open-source mobile OS created by Google, Android. It still might seem peculiar to some, seeing a mobile OS on something that’s not a smartphone, but it’s something that grows on you. It’s going to be much faster than Windows anyway, and much less of a battery hog. Pricing and availability hasn’t been revealed at the moment, but you can count on the Neo being available later this year.
