Aspire One D250 runs Android, Windows

Acer made a partial return to Linux for netbooks on Thursday by confirming a version of the Aspire One D250 with Android. The 10-inch netbook can use Google's OS to start up almost immediately and browse the web, check e-mail or perform other common tasks much faster than would be possible with Windows XP. It also gives access to many apps on Android Market that would be off-limits to PCs.

The system makes no sacrifices compared to the existing design and still uses a 1.6GHz Atom chip, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and wireless links through 802.11g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Acer is already shipping the Android variant today in black, blue, red and white colors for $350.
