Android-powered Compaq smartbook is a go for Telefonica and possibly AT&T

Remember that Android smartbook that HP was showing off during CES? It was just announced as the Compaq Airlife 100 in partnership with Telefonica. This Snapdragon-powered smartbook will be offered as a subsidized part of mobile broadband service plans in Europe and Latin America later this year.

The device features a 16GB SSD, 3G and WiFi connectivity, webcam, SD slot, and a 10.1-inch resistive touchscreen display all powered by custom version of Android (1.6 we believe). Google has yet to certify any smartbooks or netbooks to run Android, so the Airlife 100 lacks all the native Google apps like Gmail, Gtalk, and Android Market.

Keep an eye on the Airlife 100 because it was recently spotted on the FCC website with support for AT&T 3G bands. AT&T announced they were releasing five Android devices and we are still waiting to get the official details on those. Hopefully, we will learn more at the upcoming Mobile World Congress next week.
