Your iPhone order has been cancelled. Your credit card has not been charged. If you believe you have received this email in error, please return to the AT&T store where you placed your order. Sincerely, AT&T

Toshina Launching an Android Netbook? [Android Rumor]

Toshiba is supposedly launching an Android netbook soon.  Not sure how that would fit in our Android Tablet world but certainly we will get to find out how useful an Android netbook is.  For one, I think having the physical keyboard is definitely a plus but when you are at that point, I would probably rather load a whole operating system such as Windows 7.

But for the time being, we will let Toshiba keep tinkering, perhaps it could be the gadget of the year, who knows?
