HP Compaq AirLife 100 Full Specs Confirmed, Runs Android & Features 1GHz Snapdragon CPU

April 21, 2010, By Alex Ion

HP officially confirmed full specs for their new Android-powered Compaq AirLife 100 smartbook. How do we know it? They updated the HP website to feature the new AirLife 100, and by the looks of it, while we’re not surprised, it’s nice to see that the 10-inch machine features the rumored 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, has 512MB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage, along with WiFi (802.11 b/g) and 3G connectivity.

First noticed at CES and then again in Barcelona at MWC, the new Compaq AirLife 100 smartbook also features a touchpad and a diagonal backlit TFT resistive touchscreen (which means there’s no multitouch on this one), and runs Android OS, although it doesn’t mention which version.

The specs list continues with a removable/rechargeable Li-Polymer battery, Bluetooth connectivity, a microUSB port and a microSD card slot. On top of that it brings the “Compaq touch experience” — whatever that means. “Compaq AirLife 100 delivers a new way of connecting to the Internet, email, social networking, photos, music, and more,” the official HP listing says.

There’s no word if the Compaq AirLife 100 smartbook will have access to the Android Marketplace, but at least HP is listing it with preloaded apps that include a “data transfer counter” and NDrive GPS. The device will launch with carrier partners in Latin America, in parts of Europe, and probably the United States (although not yet official) since it’s now live on HP USA. No word of price.
