T-Mobile Android netbook

Taiwanese phone specialist HTC is collaborating with carrier T-Mobile on an Android-based netbook, a TMOToday source claims. Little is known about the computer, except that it should feature built-in 3G reception for T-Mobile's broadband network, and ship sometime before the end of the year. Such a timeframe could suggest a launch no later than early October, timed to coincide with the frequent influx of school computer sales.

HTC and T-Mobile have become closely linked through Google's Android platform, which is used on the T-Mobile G1, based on HTC's Dream smartphone. A G2 (or MyTouch 3G) based on the HTC Magic is said to be in development, and the HTC Hero may already have been tapped to become the G3. Several other companies such as HP, ASUS and Dell are believed to be interested in creating Android netbooks.
