Android Racing ahead

HP is evaluating Google's open-source Android operating system for use in some its PCs and mobile devices. A spokesperson for HP said that the company is "studying the Android operating system". However, HP stressed that it remains open to considering various operating system options.

Asus, meanwhile, has already announced plans to port Android to its netbook range.

Commenting on the reports, Google said that it designed Android to be open and scalable for precisely this type of application."Android is a free open-source mobile platform, so anyone can take the Android platform and add code or download it to create a mobile device without restrictions," said a Google spokesman.

LG Electronics has already announced its plans of going to equip two new smartphones with Android, following the footsteps of Samsung and Motorola.
