Got twenty minutes to kill and a hankering for HP’s Compaq Airlife 100 smartbook? Then Carrypad have the video for you; they’ve got an early Airlife 100 unit from HP Spain, ahead of its release on Movistar, and have unboxed it and run through some of its features.

Benefits are a lighter unit than first-gen touchscreen netbooks, and longer battery life too. As Steve Paine points out, the Airlife 100 uses a very similar sized battery to the iPad, and indeed the same sort of ARM Cortex A8 core (albeit a 1GHz Snapdragon in the smartbook, versus Apple’s own A4), but of course the Android OS it runs allows for multitasking.
