Sony Ericsson Smartbook

Sony Ericsson may be entering the smartbook field with a model of its own, based on a rumor today. A purported Taiwan-area source says the company is developing one of the mini notebooks. Most details aren't available to NetbookNews, including the choices of processor or operating system; The smartbook concept usually centers around a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor fast enough to rival a netbook and either Android or another Linux variant, but any ARM processor and a suitable operating system are candidates.

The cellphone maker hasn't indicated its own plans to venture into smartbooks but has signaled its intent to use Android on some smartphones and has been making a renewed commitment to high end devices as a whole. Most smartbooks will have built-in 3G, Wi-Fi and other networking and should hinge on Internet access.
