Acer preps its second-gen Android/Win netbook

by Frank Zhang on April 1, 2010

Not long after Acer announced last year that it was launching an Android netbook did the company unveile the first-of-its-kind Acer Aspire One D250. Then just yesterday Acer’s mobile product manager Martino Mombrini let slip that an updated model is on its way

The D260, like its predecessor, will also be able to dual boot Android and Windows. Not much else is currently known about this netbook, except that the chassis is getting a redesign. But wait, there’s more.

The Acer suit also mentioned plans to out a Google Chrome OS netbook sometime in the second half of the year, which is right along the same lines we’ve been hearing all along. Chances are the company is simply waiting for Google to release the final build of the OS, which will then get stuffed in a random netbook.
