MSI Android netbook coming

MSI is planning on introducing an Android-based netbook at the Computex 2009 show in Taiwan at the start of June, according to a Thursday DigiTimes report. The Taiwanese hardware maker will take the opportunity offered by the show to secure orders from computer retailers. While MSI wouldn't comment on the report, the development of the netbook was done together with Taiwan's Institute for Information Industry (III).

The MSI Android-based netbook is likely to be based on the company's 10.2-inch Wind model, or the newer Wind U100, though this has not been confirmed.

The Android netbook market is heating up, with HP considering releasing such products, while ASUS and Dell are also reported to be considering releasing their own versions.
