Acer revealed plans to release a Google Chrome OS netbook in the second half of 2010. Chairman JT Wang revealed his company has been working on this system since mid-2009 and said he's confident that this will be the first Chrome-based netbook in the market.
Acer chairman JT Wang also expressed his confidence that the company will be the first vendor to launch Chrome-based netbook in the market during a recent interview with Digitimes.
Acer was the first first-tier vendor to launch a Google Android-based netbook in the market. Although demand for the model was not as strong as expected, it did not dampen Acer's willingness to develop netbooks with non-Microsoft operating systems.
