BenQ backs Android

Google-based smartphone and netbook en route

BenQ has become the latest tech firm to join Android’s ever-expanding band of supporters by announcing plans to develop both a smartphone and a netbook based on the Google OS.

BenQ already has experience of both the PC and handset markets. For example, it’s already launched several Windows Mobile-based smartphones, such as the E72 – reviewed here — and recently unveiled its AMD-based nScreen i91 all-in-one nettop. ®
