Postby garywang » Fri Oct 16, 2009 3:12 am

Dear all,

How do u feel for Android in Notebook?!

I know the purpose of Android is used for cellular phone, but it's really useful for any mobile device, including netbook...

Thanks!

Since almost all android apps are designed for smaller screens, i would like to see a netbook-android using separate windows for each running app, resizable, default-size is 320x480, system saves sizes changed by the user for every app and restores it on next launch.

This way, all existing apps would instantly run on the netbook-system and we would get a good user-experience because the apps would look like intended and multitasking would be more visible.

It seems like Android should have multi-active activities with original application screen size. :) Each application should be parallel working... :)

I checked some online stores first. Today I visited a mega store and a special laptop store.
Both sell the Acer Aspire D250 only with WinXP in Germany. :evil: :evil: :evil:
