Acer introduces dual-boot netbook with Android and Windows XP Home
Acer has announced the availability of the Aspire One AOD250 netbook featuring a dual-boot operating system including Android and Windows XP Home.

The open design of Android gives Aspire One users faster connections to the Internet and increased access to productivity and entertainment applications. Acer is offering the 10.1-inch Aspire One AOD250 with Android and Windows XP to U.S. customers with prices beginning at US$349.99.

The dual-boot feature allows users to switch between Android and Windows XP Home operating systems with just a click of a mouse. Designed specifically for mobile devices and applications, Android allows the Aspire One netbook to boot up and shut down quickly with “instant on” Internet connectivity, saving time and boosting productivity.

“The Android operating system and the Aspire One netbook is an ideal combination for end users that require a highly mobile device for data consumption,” said Sumit Agnihotry, vice president of product management for Acer America. “The unique dual-boot OS on the new Aspire One ensures users fast connections, the familiarity of Windows, and the added convenience of open source mobile platforms and applications.”

Weighing less than three pounds, the Aspire One utilizes the energy-efficient Intel Atom Processor N280, Mobile Intel 945GSE Express Chipset and Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. It comes with a high-density, six-cell, 5800 mAh battery, 1GB DDR2 RAM of memory, integrated 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi network connectivity, and a 160GB internal hard drive to store user digital data.

The Aspire One utilizes a Multi-Gesture Touchpad, allowing users to pinch, flick and swirl their fingers across the touchpad for intuitive navigation. It also allows users to scroll, zoom in and out and flip through web pages, photos, spreadsheets and more.

With a 10.1-inch LED-backlit display, the Aspire One AOD250 offers a broader viewing area for Web page navigation and data input. For communication needs, the netbook is equipped with the Acer Crystal Eye webcam.
