Acer Aspire One D260 Android Compatible Netbook.Aspire One D260 netbook hits the UK July 1st…..

Acer’s Aspire One netbook line has done incredibly well over the past few years — largely due to its competitive pricing — but apparently that’s given Acer the impression that people want to see the brand smacked in large letters on the lid. Yep, that’s the first thing that struck us about the new 10.1-inch Aspire One D260 when we saw it last week at Computex. But, if you can overlook that, Acer has made some rather welcoming aesthetic tweaks, including subbing the glossy plastic cover for one with a softer matte coating, and extending that same feel to the palmrest.

Acer has announced that the Acer Aspire One D260 will be available in the UK on July 1st, 2010. This comes a few days after Acer Spain announced the launch of the company’s latest 10 inch mini-laptop.

Internally, the D260 boasts an Intel Atom N450 or N455 processor, up to 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive. Interestingly, there’s mention of it booting Android in the press release, which makes sense given that the D250 was available with the Google OS, but we didn’t notice that option in our short hands-on time with it. Look for this little guy to hit the UK in early July, and we can only assume that the U.S. pricing and availability should be announced soon enough.

Acer has just announced its latest netbooj, the Acer Aspire One D260, available in a Pantone spectrum of surprisingly cute colors.

As expected there’s Wi-Fi b/g/n with Bluetooth 3.0+HS and 10/100 Ethernet. There are also three USB 2.0 ports, VGA, multi-format memory reader and audio in/out. If we’re lucky it could land on one of carriers because it also has quad band 3G/UMTS. The price has yet to be announced, it should be fairly reasonable.

Acer’s press release mentions that the netbook will be available with a Google Android option, although I suspect this won’t be that common an option. The Acer Aspire One D250 was also available in a dual boot Android/Windows configuration, but the vast majority of D250 units shipped without Android.

Battery life is a bit substandard, unfortunately. You have a choice between a 3-cell battery for up to 4 hours of run time, or a 6-cell battery for up to 8 hours. That’s a good twenty percent less than we usually consider acceptable for a netbook of this type.

With dual operating systems, you can boot up the Acer Aspire One with Android in a matter of seconds for ultrafast connectivity. When you need top productivity, just switch OS to take advantage of Windows 7 functionalities. There is not even need to reboot. Plus, all internet connections established on Android platform remain up and running even if you reboot the netbook or suspend the session. Amazing!

Interestingly, there’s mention of it booting Android in the press release, which makes sense given that the D250 was available with the Google OS, but we didn’t notice that option in our short hands-on time with it. Look for this little guy to hit the UK in early July, and we can only assume that the U.S. pricing and availability should be announced soon enough. Check out some more pictures of the machine in the gallery below and the full PR after the break.

In other words, short of the color, the new Aspire One is a bit ho-hum for a modern netbook. Worse, Acer have yet to reveal the price, which makes this hard to recommend even as a budget netbook.
