HP considers possible uses for Android

Hewlett-Packard has said it is studying uses for Google's Android operating system, but the world's top PC maker stopped short of saying it had decided to adopt the fledgling software in its products, according to Reuters.

Many analysts view Android, originally designed for use on smartphones, as a viable platform for netbooks, which would pose "a direct challenge to Microsoft and its dominant Windows operating system" the report said.

No PC maker has committed to Android publicly.
