One of the most interesting gadgets shown at Mobile World Congress is the HP Compaq AirLife 100, which melds smartphone technology with netbook usability. Powered by a 1-Ghz Snapdragon processor, this super-portable smartbook boasts a 10.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen, an almost full-sized keyboard, and version 1.6 of the Android OS. It also has 3G, Wi-Fi, and GPS connectivity, as well as a front-facing 0.3-megapixel VGA webcam.
I got some hands-on time with the AirLife at the show and was impressed by its ease of use and responsiveness. The AirLife will be sold exclusively through Telefonica and is is expected to be available in Spring 2010 in select countries. Pricing has not been announced.
