Acer recently launched a dual boot version of the Acer Aspire One D255 netbook which runs both Windows and Google Android. And Sascha from Netbook managed to pick one up in Taiwan recently. You can check out his unboxing and first look video after the break.

The netbook runs about $289 in Taiwain and comes with 1GB of memory, a 160GB hard drive, and Windows XP as well as Android.

In order to boot Google Android, you’ll need to first launch Windows and run a utility to configure the computer to boot Android. Once you do manage to get into Android, you’ll notice that Acer has configured the operating system to use a mouse cursor — something which most Android devices don’t need.

Acer also includes a tab in the Android home screen which you can press to exit Android and boot Windows XP.

You can check out Sascha’s unboxing video below to watch him get frustrated with the packaging and lament over the fact that he can’t read Chinese… oh yeah, he also takes a look at the hardware and software on the computer.

    1. The video is working for me right now — but I’m working on some server issues with the site. If you can’t see the video, try clicking the link to Netbook News and you should be able to see the video there.
