Acer (and just about everyone else in the sector) isn’t just busy churning out new netbook models. The tech giant has also been working tirelessly on a new range of MIDs — and it sounds like the new models are nearly ready to hit the street.

According to PC World, the Acer MIDs are set to arrive before the end of May and will sport version 4.0 of the company’s…er…interesting Shell interface. I’m hoping that the “virtual office” thing has gone away for good.

Shell 4.0’s foundations remain a mystery — will it be WinMo or Android? We’ll find out soon.

  1. Why would anyone ship or announce the end of May? Everyone is saving their announcements for Computex!! PC World must mean arriving in their office at the end of May in time for Computex June 1st!
