Acer’s dual-boot Android netbook is now available to pre-order in the United States through Amazon.com. Acer is using an iteration of its Aspire One D250 netbook for this new dual-boot model. The white D250 (model number: AOD250-1613) is on pre-order for $350.
Most of the specifications are unchanged from the current Aspire One D250 (no hardware revisions unlike the Windows 7 D250). It has a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) display and is powered by a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU, 1GB RAM (max 2GB) and a 160GB HDD (5,400RPM).
The system dual-boots between Google Android and Windows XP (SP3). It has a multi-touch touchpad and comes with a 5800mAh 6-cell battery that should be good for 9 hours of life. Other features include webcam, three USB ports, card reader, Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi (b/g). The D250 weighs 2.79lbs (1.3kg) and has dimensions of 10.17 x 7.24 x 1 inches (WxDxH).
