Acer dual OS netbook due

An Acer netbook with both Windows XP and Android, which gives users the option of booting into either operating system, is due to ship sometime this August, DigiTimes reported on Monday. First announced at the start of June, the netbook's main specs are unknown at this time, but prices aren't likely to be lower than Windows XP-exclusive netbooks, as Acer still needs to pay license fees for the Microsoft operating system.

The netbooks are expected to be assembled for Acer by both Compal and Quanta. At the same time, competitors ASUS and MSI, who have their own Android-based netbooks in development, will not bring these products to market this year, according to the report. Pricing for the dual-boot netbooks is not known at this time.
