7 Google Android devices that aren't mobile phones

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.

HP Compaq AirLife 100

What it is: A tablet that is, in some ways, almost a phone.

The Compaq AirLife 100 features a 10.1in touchscreen, and an almost full-sized keyboard, as well as Wi-Fi, GPS, a webcam and integrated 3G.

Why it's interesting: This could be the first Android tablet (meaning touchscreen netbook) by a major PC manufacturer, although Dell is rumoured to be working on both an Android tablet and a netbook.

It's powered by a 1-GHz Snapdragon processor. The gadget was on display at the 2010 Mobile World Congress, and will be available in the UK sometime this spring.
