You've probably never heard of Hivision but, if this article from SlashGear is correct, you could be seeing a lot of their products in the near future. They're putting the finishing touches on a new Android netbook that could sell for as little as $149. That would put this 7" netbook well within the price range of even the poorest college student.

These books use old ARM9 500 MHz processors. This sounds very reedy, but people who have used the machines firsthand report rather zippy performance. These machines are loaded with a minimalist OS and probably barely any non browsing/word processing related software. A bare-bones machine with a 500 MHz processor could scrape out at least decent speed. The machine in the video looks pretty fast, at any rate.

The netbooks displayed had almost instant boot-up from sleep. We're told that these netbooks will have a 4 hour battery life as well. Not bad, Hivision.
