Google Androidbook coming later this year according to rumors

Is it still April Fools' Day? A new report today from the somewhat reliable DigiTimes is reporting that Google is looking to get deeper into the notebook and PC market.

Asus Eee PC netbook gets unofficial Ice Cream Sandwich

Around Android circles Asus is known for its Transformer series of tablets.

Appropriately, the PC machines are now capable of running Android 4.0, or at least the Eee PC X101 is. The capability comes from the Android x86 project, which allows the open-source OS to run on hardware designed for desktop operating systems. The X101 is designed to run Intel and Nokia's Meego operating system, but is capable of  running pretty much any x86-based OS.
