HP testing Android on netbooks

android-logoThis is completely off topic, but earlier today I was wondering if Google would eventually turn into Skynet. In case you’re wondering, I just got hooked on the Terminator television series.

Anyway, the WSJ is reporting that HP is currently testing out Google’s Android platform for a possible netbook. They haven’t committed to an Android-based netbook, but HP’s Satjiv Chahil, VP of the PC division, confirmed that the company is currently testing the OS.

“We want to assess the capability Android may have for the computer and communications industries, and so we are studying it,” Mr. Chahil said.

If a PC manufacturer were able to integrate Android into a netbook or even notebook then I’d certainly pick one up. It’s pretty obvious that Google is slowly muscling in on Microsoft’s territory.
