Yesterday at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, HP announced a new Android-powered netbook computer, the Compaq Airlife 100. The Airlife 100 runs the Android 1.6 operating system and sports a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, which allows it to run both quickly and efficiently for a full day of always-on operation.

The main 10.1-inch display is touch sensitive, and the netbook features both WiFi and 3G connectivity and includes a 16GB solid state drive for internal storage.

Close inspection of the keypad will show that there are no function keys on the device, as found on typical Windows netbooks, and that the touchpad controller is home to the typical Android buttons, such as the back key.

The Airlife 100 will be offered initially with Telefonica for an as-yet unspecified subsidized price. HP has so far declined to indicate when the Compaq Airlife 100 will hit retail shelves.
