Google's OS expands to other devices

Google Android isn't just the name on everyone's lips when it comes to mobile phones. The open-source OS has also made it on to mobile internet entertainment devices, netbooks and other gadgets. We've rounded up 7 gadgets that run Android but aren't mobile phones.

Ramos W7 'Blue Magic' MID

What it is: An MID with a bigger emphasis on the internet, complete with a 4.8in touchscreen display which connects via Wi-Fi.

Why it's interesting: The device caused some stir in the fall thanks to its Android-specific 600MHz Rockchip CPU.

eviGroup's MID Wallet

What it is: A 5in touchscreen MID with a webcam, Wi-Fi and integrated 3G.

Why it's interesting: This device has been talked about for months and was initially supposed to ship in January, but as of press time, still didn't seem to be available.

Beyond a few basic hardware specs, details on what the device will do to distinguish itself are a bit sketchy.

At one time, it was thought it would use an x86 processor and be capable of running XP, but latest word is that it will use ARM chipsets.
