Acer One D260 new dual boot Andriod Windows 7 Netbook - 09 June 2010
Acer One D260 has decided to do something different with the Aspire One D260 and add an interesting dual boot feature - Windows and Android.

The netbook itself is pretty has the following value specification:

  • 10.1 inch, 1,024 x 600 display
  • Choice of:
     - 1.66GHz Atom N450 with 1GB of DDR2 RAM
    - 1.66GHz Atom N455 with 2GB of DDR3
  • Intel GMA 3150 graphics
  • 250GB hard drive
  • Card reader, 3x USB, Wireless N, Bluetooth, Ethernet …
  • 8 hour battery life with optional 6 cell battery
  • Size: 258.5mm x 185mm x 24mm
  • Weight: 1.25kg
  • MiniGo adapter 34% lighter than typical adapters
  • Choice of four colors: Black Flake, Purple Flake, Pink Flake and Charcoal Flake.

What’s really quite interesting about this new Netbook is the dual boot - offering both Windows 7 and Google Android OS. There’s very little info on the Android OS from Acer at present, so I’m guessing Android 1.5. We are however promised a 15 second boot time to check email and surf the web, which is great.

No price yet, and availability is expected July 1st
