Superthin netbook runs on Marvell Armada 510
Marvell is currently showing off some devices that run their Armada CPU. One of the most interesting is the SmartBook prototype. Unlike the Lenovo skylight, this one looks pretty much like your standard netbook even though it is as thin as the Lenovo book.
While it is currently in ODM-mode (read: not yet branded) I’m sure it will be up for sale shortly. The price is about $200, which is really good for my wallet. In addition, approximately 4 hours to battery life. Not much, but it must be used for short, of a work. The screen is a comfortable 12.1″ and runs Ubuntu Linux.
When Marvell or its partner manufacturers them out the door really fast, I’m sure more people get sold on the idea of SmartBook.
