The state of Android netbooks Exclusive

The state of Android netbooks

BSqaure porting Flash for Dell


Android Remember the vague chatter coming from BSqaure about them working with a "Global Tier I Carrier" to bring Flash to Android devices? A lot of us thought that meant T-Mobile, and assumed the hardware would be a descendant of the G1. But...
