Acer Aspire One D255 netbook dual boots Android and XP for about $375….
Acer is expected to show off a new dual boot netbook at a trade show in Taiwan net month. Like an earlier Acer Asprie One D250 netbook, the new Acer Aspire One AOD255 will reportedly ship with both Windows XP and Google Android, allowing users to boot into either operaitng system.
The netbook will sell in Taiwan for the equivalent of about $370 US. No word on whether this model will be available in other parts of the globe anytime soon… or ever.
Otherwise, the NT$9,500 (about $300) 10.1-inch netbook configured with an Atom N450 processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB hard disk, and 3-cell battery (with optional 6-cell) will cost you NT$11,900 (about $375) when it hits traditional retail channels sometime in the days ahead.
Earlier we’d heard that Acer would make a dual-boot version of the Acer Aspire One D260 available, but that doesn’t seem to have happened yet.
