Default A $99 Android Netbook

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2010/07/27/augens-99-genbook-smartbook-preview/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2010/07/27/...rtbook-preview/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"So, is the GenBook worth your $100? Depends on what you need this thing for -- it's alright for looking up a quick Website here and there, and we assume if you can get some light apps running on it, it could be a decent single-function device. However, if you're looking for something that can provide decent video playback and be more of a multitasker, it's probably best to save up an extra $100 and get something a bit more substantial (like a bona fide netbook)."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1280280316.usr10.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></em></p><p>This is the same company that is bringing you the $150 Android tablet I reported on yesterday. &nbsp;This one fares poorly in the review and I'm hoping it doesn't&nbsp;reflect on the quality of the tablet (although it probably does). &nbsp;I'm still keeping my fingers crossed since the tablet supposedly has Android 2.1 as opposed to 1.6 on this and more horsepower. &nbsp;Otherwise, this really is similar to what Asus first offered in the original Eee at a fantastic price point. &nbsp;With some fine tuning, it could still be a winner. &nbsp;Still, I've got to ask, where the heck did this company come from?</p>
