Acer Aims to be First with Chrome Netbook

By  |  1 Comment

acer-aspire-oneAcer is aiming to be the first out of the chute with a Google Chrome based Netbook in 2010 according to a report on DigiTimes. I’m not surprised they are making noise about this, because Acer is making noise on lots of fronts. Who will actually get there first is a race that, if nothing else, will be fun watching.

The report mentions that Acer was disappointed with sales of the Android based Netbook that actually dual booted with Windows XP, but remains undeterred. Look for Acer’s Chrome based entry in late 2010. (Along with everyone else’s.)

    I’m surprised they were disappointed on Android. Apart from those on the bleeding edge of tech who would they expect to buy such a thing?

    Clearly there is a future for Android and Chrome, but it’s going to be a while before the general public have a need or desire for such devices. For most folks it’s about the utility, and most wont see past Windows for a long time.
