NEC shows 7-inch, Android-powered MGX netbook

NEC has plans to bring out a seven-inch netbook that is powered by Android and is just 9.9mm thick. During an interview with the company's senior vice president, Sakae Takatsuka, a prototype of the unit was shown to NotebookItalia. Dubbed MGX, the device has a screen resolution of 1024x600 and both Wi-Fi as well as HSUPA-based 3G.

The 350 gram netbook promises a 10-hour battery life and its hinges allow for a 360-degree opening. This does indicate the screen will have touchscreen capabilities. The chassis of the netbook is made of a mix of plastic and stainless steel parts.

While prices or even the device's production aren't yet finalized, it's expected that the MGX will cost about 80,000 yen, or about $1,040.
