Acer’s dual-boot Android netbook gets negative video impressions

October 29, 2009 at 9:46 pm

Acer dual-boot Android Acer’s dual-booting Android/Windows Aspire One AOD250 netbook certainly has garnered lots of headlines since its announcement. However the practicalities of such a device may not be so positive. Engadget has posted its initial impressions of AOD250 and it’s not pretty reading.

They couldn’t get the Gmail app to install onto the desktop, which was a major flaw in their eyes. You get Google Talk and Calendar apps but that doesn’t compensate for Gmail. They also had Wi-Fi & Ethernet connection problems too. They went as far to say that the Android part was “useless” and that the “best thing you can do with this is to boot it to XP”. Ouch. Check out the video after the break.

    We love it & think you won’t go wrong on this. Glossy finish shows fingerprints, but it looks good. Screen is really nice, sharp, beautiful colors. Touchpad is seamless, which is nice so that you don’t get crumbs in the cracks (sitting on the couch.. it happens), and build quality seems pretty solid.

    the beta channel was updtad to R19.0.1084.30 for Chromebooks only-which is fine, but why would they also be UPDATED (?) TO R18.0.1025.165 a few days later, too? Seems they went backwards here? See, I am totally confused :) Although, I DO understand the beta update for my Cr-48 at least! Anyone can clarify this to me?

    Frankly, I think “checking your brain at the door” is a cheat, and a pretty dependable sign of lazy writing. Some films are worth it even so, for the craft of the non-writers in the production. If “overthinking” something makes it fall apart, then it’s not well put together in the first place – it means the story’s conceit doesn’t hold up under its own terms.

    Coucou Mathilde,si on fait abstraction du coup de stress de la semaine dernière qui a provoqué une éruption de boutons, ma peau se porte plutôt bien.Pourtant pas de vraie routine ces dernieres semaines: je reste fidèle à mon lait démaquillant Lavera pour enlever mon maquillage et à un masque (rhassoul en poudre + sels de la mer morte) / gommage (Origins) désincrustant une fois par semaine.Pour les soins hydratants, j´utilise les échantillons qui se sont accumulés au cours de l´année, ce qui me laisse le temps de réfléchir à mon prochain achat. Pas facile quand on a autant de choix sur le marché !
