Remember that cool-looking little Android netbook-tablet we reported last week? Well, at the time, the only thing that seemed fishy about it was the price, and lo and behold that part has now changed. The $100 price point quoted was the wildest speculation, apparently, and the real cost will be a much more believable $250.
It’s too hard to say at this point whether this form factor will really take off; the ARM processor and extra-small form factor put it dangerously close to MID territory, and that sector isn’t doing so well. Will people go for this sub-netbook style? Will they rebel and go all dv2 style, wanting more but not as much as a laptop? Only time will tell, but I can tell you that I’d sure like to have one of these Alpha 680s sitting around just for kicks.
