Acer Aspire One with Android


Acer unveiled its Aspire One netbook using Google’s Android operating system on June 2, 2009 at Computex.

… the majority of Acer netbooks will also offer Android in the future… Acer believes the Android operating system will contribute significantly to the worldwide netbook market growth.

Acer will give the customer the choice of having Android on its netbooks. I hope the brains over at Google makes the next iteration of Android capable of background processing similar to what the Pre does using WebOS. The press release states that the Android OS provides faster connection to the Internet on netbooks compared to other operating systems such as Windows XP. Acer plans to launch the first Aspire One netbooks with Android in the third quarter of this year.
