Acer Aspire One AOD255 netbook uses Android as a quick-booting operating system and then Windows XP as the main operating system. Acer software on the device, called “Acer Configuration Manager for Android,” controls which OS will boot. The netbook sports a 10.1-inch screen and has Intel’s Atom N450 microprocessor inside. It carries 1GB of DDR2 (double data rate, second generation) DRAM, 160GB HDD for storage. The device comes with a 3-cell lithium-ion battery, but Acer also sells a 6-cell battery for an additional NT$3,000 (£60), a salesman said.
People attending the Taipei Computer Applications Show, which runs through the weekend, will be able to order the device on Thursday and pick it up Friday.
