Laptop Magazine spent some time and got hands on with a netbook from Wistron called the PBook. This isn’t your typical netbook fare; the machine is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform. The CPU inside the machine is a 1GHz unit that promises to sip power miserly enough to offer 8 to 10 hours of run time.

Graphics inside the machine ATI hardware accelerated graphics and offers support for camera sensors up to 12MP. I'm not so sure what you would need with a 12MP camera sensor in a netbook though. The device can work with many wireless connectivity options including 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The machine has a 12-inch screen and a long profile that looks like a larger VAIO P.

The operating system on the machine Laptop checked out was Linux, but the Qualcomm platform can support other operating systems like Android and Windows Mobile. I'm not sure how well a netbook can do on today's market that doesn't offer some form of a desktop Windows OS. Qualcomm has reportedly said that devices running on the Snapdragon platform will be available in Q3 of this year.
