Acer has unveiled a new dual boot netbook having two operating systems installed; Google’s Android mobile software and Microsoft’s Windows XP OS in the same netbook. The Acer Aspire One AOD255 netbook uses Android as a quick-booting operating system and then Windows 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 as well as a 160GB hard disk drive (HDD) for storage.
The device comes with a 3-cell lithium-ion battery, but Acer also sells a 6-cell battery for an additional US$95.
The Acer Aspire One AOD255 will be priced around US$375, reports Yahoo News.
