    Just spotted this review of the Alpha 680. Doesn't sound like it's a particularly inspiring piece of kit. And sweet jesus but it's ugly!

    I am not sure who the reviewer is, but I think he missed the point of the Alpha.

    To me he was more worried about the look and feel than what the thing did.

    I wasn't loving the yellow but the idea of a "touch screen tablet netbook" would make up for it some.

    Heck give it a couple months on the market and some one would make a "tough case" for it.

    Question ....
    Will the Android netbooks be able to access the market and other thing like our phones ????

    I'd imagine they can access the market, although the manufacturers may decide to create their own device-specific market, a bit like Archos are supposedly doing with their Android powered tablet, which will hopefully be revealed tomorrow. if the rumours are true.
