Google "Google's Chrome Operating System launch has been delayed, and the platform won't be available to launch on netbooks for at least the 'next few months'. Google CEO Eric Schmidt revealed as much to reporters in a Q&A session at the Web 2.0 Summit Nov. 15, adding that the platform continues to be targeted for devices with a keyboard. Though he didn't provide a reason for the delay, he certainly shredded the rumor that there would be netbooks based on Google's Chrome Operating System launching this month."

The Toshiba AC100 netbook runs Android on nVIDIA Tegra.

I have one. Android is very immature. Mouse pointer sometimes freezes for a second. AC100 doesn't have touch screen, but applications lacks keyboard shortcuts, only BIG onscreen buttons. Very bad.

Two browsers available are equally crap-full.
Familiar keyboard actions doesn't work (like Shift-select / Ctrl+XCV)
!@#$%^&, etc are entered with ALT, not SHIFT.
Opera Mobile frequently ignores "submit" button while posting to forums - something is seriously broken here.

Youtube client doesn't work at all. It worked first time, but later something happens and it is dead now.

Not much of "innovation", but more a half-baked product.
