HP Prepares Snapdragon Netbook Prototype

HP is joining Lenovo in the ranks of netbook makers delivering a Snapdragon-based machine. The new HP prototype breaks the trend of netbooks running the Intel Atom with the new Qualcomm chip that offers more efficiency and battery life.

The Snapdragon CPU can power some small computers for up to 24 hours. It has a lower clock speed than the new Pine Trail CPUs but, in conjunction with Linux or Google Android it could be a competitive combo.

Very little else is known about the upcoming Snapdragon HP netbook.
