Snap Shell or Sea Dragon – Asus Snapdragon Powered Seashell

news_computex2009-qualcommeee1ghz_fullOnly a matter of hours ago I mentioned that Asus were planning something with a definite Snapdragon flavour and sure enough an Android Eee PC powered by the Qualcomm chip has been caught on video at Computex!

The Snapdragon chip in this Android Eee PC meanwhile means it’s capable of 720p video, and 1080p is the next step, according to Qualcomm.

From the outside this netbook looks like the much-loved 1008HA Seashell, but this is just one of a few styles the company is showing off at Computex.

Inside is that 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

Using this hardware means that this particular Eee doesn’t need a fan to keep cool, and that power consumption would be slight, even compared to netbooks based on Intel’s power-sipping Atom

There are no details on a mass market model just yet, but you can check out the Android Eee PC in the hands-on video below.

Could this be the future?


Much love to Tweaktown!
