Chippy had a brief hands-on with theA100 at Mobile World Congress 2011, though it was shown running Android 2.2 back then:
Itâ€™s odd that thereâ€™s a home button on the bezel considering that Android 3.0 moves the home button (and back/app switcher/menu buttons) into the software. Iâ€™m also somewhat worried about the width of the bezels on the top and bottom of the screen; there may not be an optimal amount of bezel-space to hold the device in portrait mode. Only time will tell.
