Qualcomm demo may show Lenovo Android PC

A demo of a smartbook prototype from Qualcomm may have provided more details of Lenovo's smartbook for AT&T, including its choice of OS. The design, which cosmetically resembles the publicly displayed Lenovo system, runs on a comparatively fast 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and has been shown running Android, suggesting Google's OS is at least a candidate for the system. Previously, it had appeared that Lenovo would use a proprietary Linux release instead.

Only some additional features are known for the reference design, including AT&T-supplied 3G, Wi-Fi and an eight-hour battery. Lenovo tells Electronista that the design is made by Quanta, but as a Taiwanese contract firm it could ultimately be responsible for manufacturing a similar Lenovo system as well.

The formal unveiling of Lenovo's sub-netbook computer is due to take place at CES in January. [via Silicon]
