 Because despite the unsuitability of android for such devices,
ANYTHING is better than microshaft.

 On top of that, you have the added benefit that running on an ARM
processor will prevent the user from installing that crap. This can go
a LONG way in beating down the monopoly and providing people with
actual FREEDOM.

 I think that the Android OS and its apps should be better equipped to run on
devices that are resource constrained, be that little screens, little memory
or a slow processor.

 Ok, I was just thinking in terms of being able to get actual work done.

 Actual work? Then what you you want windeath for? I run fedora 10 on
my Acer Aspire One with SSD. MUCH greater functionality than any
windeath, and boots up from cold in about 10 seconds (with the SSD,
the write speed is a touch slow, but the read speed is phenomenal). If
you had an ARM CPU instead of the x86, you wouldn't be limited to
android -- you could use debian, for example. You would just be
forcibly freed from that monopoly.

 I mean, can I develope for Android in the machines you are sugesting? Otherwise 
they are useless to me. How do you plan to use it?

Huh? You might have missed the fact that Windows CE runs on x86, ARM and MIPS.
If anyone has the resources to port Windows to any architecture that's
Microsoft.
The Windows kernel is designed specifically to be easily portable
across architectures.

To me you sound like the typical Microsoft basher. Let me remind you a
wise saying which goes like that:

"If at your twenties you don't have a favorite OS and programming
language you don't have a heart. If at your thirties you still have
them you don't have a brain."

I hope you're at your twenties.

Cheers

 Well, you can develope for android with the windows xp machine that I sugested 
and at the same price and just as small (8 inches). So other than your hate for 
windows what is the big advantage?

 $250 seems a little high, hopefully the prices drop as predicted in
that article, to less than $200.

 No viruses, nobody spying on you, freedom to do what you want how you
want, the strength of standard unix tools, performance, price,
stability and reliability, independence, ... do I need to go on?

Have a look at this: 
 http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=30747& ;vpn=LU.S020A.011&manufacture=Acer
$299 CDN = $245 US. That comes with linpus but is easily upgraded to
Fedora 10, performs great with F10, due to the SSD would be totally
unsuitable for microshaft, out specs that android netbook by a LOOOONG
shot. Definitely capable of android development...
