At this point we're pretty close to calling Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform vaporware -- sure, we've seen a lot of clunky prototypes, but the company's been promising a commercial launch forever, going so far as to say that it had lined up 30 reference designs by the likes of HTC, LG, Samsung, and ASUS. Sure, ok -- but all it's got at CES are the same old gigantor testing devices and lonely Linux convertible. Oh, but now there's Android. Very impressive, guys -- too bad Android was also running on the actually-interesting GiiNii Movit Mini parked next door. At least the whole thing wasn't faked liked last year, we suppose. Shots in the gallery, of course.
