Acer: Android not good enough for netbooks

Posted on Thursday, April 09 2009 @ 20:23:04 CEST by

Computer vendor Acer announced they won't launch netbooks based on the Google Android platform just yet. While the company admits they're testing Android on netbooks, Acer's President Gianfranco Lanci and Jim Wong believe the operating system isn't ready yet for computer systems:
"For a netbook, you really need to be able to view a full web for the total internet experience," Wong said. "And Android is not that yet."

Lanci echoed Wong's sentiments, adding that Android is better suited for communication, whereas Windows comes at the market from the computing side. According to Lanci, an ideal solution would be to offer both. However Lanci did admit that Acer is currently testing Android on its netbooks, adding "I think everybody in the industry is testing Android on netbooks."
