Acer Aspire One D250 with Google Android


As expected, Acer has started showing off a dual boot netbook called the Acer Aspire One AOD255. It can run both Google Android and Windows 7, and comes with software called the Acer Configuration manager which you can use to determine which operating system will load.

Like other recent netbooks from Acer, the machine has 1GB of memory, a 160GB hard drive, a 10.1 inch display, and a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor. The netbok comes with a choice of a 3 or 6 cell battery.

Computer World reports that the base model with a 3 cell battery is selling for about 4300 in Taiwan at the Taipei Computer Applications Show this week,but the final price will be closer to $375. There’s no word on whether the Acer Aspire One AOD255 will be available outside of Taiwan anytime soon.

This isn’t the first time Acer has offered a dual boot netbook. A version of the Acer Aspire One D250 which could run Windows and Android was also available briefly.
