HP's Airlife smartbook shows in FCC filing

updated 03:50 pm EST, Thu January 21, 2010

HP Compaq Airlife 100 now known to be smartbook

HP in an FCC filing submitted in just the past day has confirmed that it plans to bring its concept smartbook to reality. The device shows up at the US agency using the previously hinted Airlife badge and would be titled the HP Compaq Airlife 100. Little is shown about what the device would use, though the FCC label shows an icon for what's likely a SIM card slot for 3G.

At CES, the smartbook shown to Electronista closely resembled a smaller, thinner version of the Mini series that would match up with the size of the FCC system. In its current form, it would have a 10-inch screen much like netbooks but would run on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and use a variant of Android 2. Most smartbooks are also defined by having 3G for always-on Internet access. [via Engadget]
