Acer Confirms Upcoming Android Netbook

An Acer rep said Wednesday that the Taiwanese manufacturer is on track to launch its Aspire One netbook with Google’s Android as an OS in the third quarter of this year.

Several reports have been alluding to a delay or cancellation of the project, prompting Acer to reaffirm its intentions. The new netbook will essentially be the traditional Windows XP Aspire One with a 10-inch screen, Atom CPU, and a different OS.

Rumors about the upcoming netbook have been around since Acer displayed a netbook running Windows XP and Android side-by-side at Computex Taipei last month. Acer’s Android Aspire One won’t dual-boot, but at least we know it’s on the way.
