"Let's start with Dell. We knew that HP and many
smaller computer manufacturers were playing with Android on the
desktop. But, just recently we discovered that Dell is tinkering
with Android on Dell's new Mini 10 netbook. Dell has always been
the most serious OEM (original equipment manufacturer) about
desktop Linux. I can think we can safely expect to see Dell being
one of the first vendors to ride the Android desktop wave when
Google finally gives it the thumbs-up.
"Oh, and on another note, Dell has also recently released a new
set of laptops in Australia with Ubuntu Linux. Dell gets that
desktop Linux is important."
