Dell Demonstrates Android on Inspiron Mini 10v

dellandroidIt wasn't too long ago that we were hearing rumors that Dell will sell a Google Android based netbook. The company isn't confirming these rumors but they are showing off its new Inspiron Mini 10v running the Android operating system.

In a two minute video Dell's Doug Anson demos the Inspiron Mini 10 running Android but also Ubuntu's Netbook remix. Oh and don't forget the third 10 -incher in the shot running Dell's tailored Ubuntu operating system.

It is nice to see Dell trying out these different OSes on their systems and looking beyond Windows. Given that Ubuntu Linux Inspiron Mini 9s account for 1/3 of their sales, it looks like Dell is hoping to have the same success with Linux on the 10s.

    Given that the Dell mini 10v sits towards the bottom end of current netbook specs (16gb SSD) Android would appear to be a great choice, and although Microsoft might not be too happy about alternate OS installations it's unlikely that Android pose as much of a threat as a full linux install that could cannabalise an existing Windows user base.
