Google It's a bit of a mobile day on OSNews today, with news about Cinder and Symbian. Next up is Google's Android. While Android is designed for smartphones, there has been increasing chatter about netbook manufacturers using Android on netbooks. Google has always remained fairly mum on the possibility of Android on netbooks, but during yesterday's earnings call, Google CEO Eric Schmidt talked about this subject.

I'd much rather see Google officially support netbooks than let the device manufactures hack they way around.

I'd much rather see manufactures port a fully functional desktop - like, but not exclusively, Ubuntu - rather than ship a crappy hack of Xandra

That was exactly my sentiments. There seems to be a lot of buzz about Android on the netbook, but in reality even Google themselves don't really seem interested in it. They're just happy about the press it's generating for their platform.
