Look what Japan’s NEC recently came up with: it’s a netbook called the LiteTouch Note. While it’s pretty hard to get worked up on new netbooks these days, but this one’s different from your typical Windows/Intel Atom-powered netbook. It runs on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor and an Android OS, which is pretty rare. We’ve seen tablets rocking a netbook’s spec before, so this makes up the flip-side.
The LifeTouch Note is as compact as it looks, with a frame built around a 7-inch, 800 x 480 screen that was pretty common back when netbooks ruled the market. Specs include an accelerometer, GPS sensor, a 2-megapixel camera, and an SDHC card slot for storage expansion. It’s unknown what kind of apps will work great on the form factor, but it can hook up with the Android Market if you need any.
Three models will be available when it arrives in Japan in March: a Wi-Fi only version with 4GB of built-in storage that costs $477, a Wi-fi version with 8GB, and a high-end model that comes with 3G, Wi-fi and 8GBs of built-in storage that’ll sell for the equivalent of $537. No word on availability outside of Japan, but if you were looking for a seven-inch Android-based netbook, you know where to go to get one. [via Akihabara]
