Acer on track to launch Android netbook in Q3 after all?

July 29, 2009 at 5:07 pm

Acer Android netbookAcer is still on track to launch its dual-booting Android netbook in the third quarter of this year according to a company representative. This follows yesterday’s news that Acer was postponing the Android netbook following expected weak demand for the device.

The Aspire One netbook will come with Google’s Android operating system, but Acer is expected to hedge their bets by dual-booting the netbook with Windows XP. The netbook will be based on an existing model and come with a 10-inch display and Intel Atom processor. Acer is working with a Taiwanese company called Insyde Software, who specialise in Linux, to port the Android OS to the Aspire One netbook with Atom CPU.

    So they´re launching in August after all? I thought they decided there wasn´t enough demand?

    Android on Intel Atom is nothing special. Even my grand mother can make that work. Android and Chrome OS on ARM processors is the real revolution for the market.
