Acer Android Netbook to come in August

Acer is expected to launch its previously announced dual-OS netbook, with both Windows XP and Android, in August 2009, while Quanta Computer and Compal Electronics both set to benefit from the orders, according to a Chinese-language Apple Daily report.

Since Acer still needs to pay licensing fees for Windows XP on the netbook, the product is unlikely to be priced lower than XP-only models.

In additional news, Asustek Computer and Micro-Star International (MSI) are still developing Android-based netbooks, but have no plans launch related netbooks in 2009, added the paper.
