Palo Alto, CA (RPRN) 05/11/10 — After the successful launch of the Cherrypal Africa product line (WinCE and Linux) in December of last year the company announced today the availability of its new sub-100-dollar laptop, the Cherrypal Asia. The “Asia” comes in its basic version with a 7” screen and Android 1.6. The Asia is also available in a 10.1” wide-screen version. The company also announced the end-of-life of the Cherrypal Africa Linux edition. Pending orders will be automatically upgraded to the “Asia” Android edition.

“Android is the ideal operating environment for the ultra-low-cost laptop market. It combines the stability and flexibility of Linux with the very intuitive user experience of Android. It seamlessly fits into our ongoing cloud computing initiative. More and more applications are going to be consumed in a hosted “application-store-like” environment rather than stored locally. The “Africa” (Windows CE) as well as the “Asia” (Android) product line are the ideal systems for our partners in the developing as well as industrialized world; low cost, “good-enough” user-experience and last but not least above average quality in order to address the digital divide and make green computing available to everyone. ”, said Max Seybold, Cherrypal's founder.
