Default Dual-boot Windows 7 / Android AOD255 Netbook from Acer

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/20100805/tc_pcworld/acerdebutsnewdualandroidwindowsxpnetbook' target='_blank'>http://news.yahoo.com/s/pcworld/201...indowsxpnetbook</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Acer's latest crack at combining Google's Android mobile software and Microsoft's Windows XP OS in the same netbook was unveiled at a computer show in Taipei on Thursday."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1281044101.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p><p>Details are a bit sketchy at this point, but Acer has unveiled the AOD255 netbook in Taipei, with their own configuration management software (Acer Configuration Manager for Android) allowing a quick boot into Android, or a 'regular' boot into Windows XP. Interesting that Linux QuickBoot systems are being started to be replaced by Android.</p><p>The device sports an Intel Atom N450, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 10.1-inch screen, a 160GB hard disk, and a 3-cell battery (a 6-cell upgraded battery will set you back $95). Basic price is expected to be around $375 and availability is yet to be determined.</p></p>
