One of the problems with conventional netbooks is that they just aren't tiny enough. At least, that's the idea behind the Compaq Airlife 100 and a whole family of similar devices due to hit later this year. The Airlife is the first of these mini-books to get fully detailed. Android and Me reports that HP has worked out an arrangement with Telefonica.
The 3G-packin' Airlife will be released later this year in Europe and Latin America. Telefonica will subsidize the cost of the device, although the exact customer price was not given. The Airlife sports a 16 GB SSD, WiFi, webcam, SD slot, and 10.1” resistive touchscreen. The mini-book is expected to run a custom version of Android 1.6.

Here's the cool bit; the Airlife support's AT&T's 3G bands. That means we could see it hit here within the next several months. Fingers crossed!
