Acer Android netbooks to be dual-boot with Windows XP

Posted on Friday, June 05 2009 @ 15:27:28 CEST by


Acer is going to release netbooks with both Android and Windows XP. The company's chairman JT Wang points out this is a safer strategy because consumer acceptance of Android is unclear for the time being.
Wang also noted that Acer will not rule out the possibility of launching Android-only models if there is enough demand from telecom providers.

The new details will come as a blow to GNU/Linux enthusiasts who took Acer's announcement earlier in the week as signs of a resurgence in support for open source software in the consumer space. The dual-OS compromise is unlikely to win support from die-hard alternative operating system supporters who will continue to cry foul of what they see as a "Windows tax" on their purchases.
