Acer's Dual-Bootin', Android Lovin' Aspire One Almost Here

As you may have heard, the 10.1-inch Aspire One D250 dual-boots between Android and, err, Windows XP. It has a 1.66GHz Atom 280 processor, 6-cell battery rated for 9 hours, and is now up for pre-order on Amazon for $US350.

Other specs are unchanged from the current model, including 1GB memory, 160GB hard disk, and an onscreen resolution of 1024x600 driven by Intel GMA graphics. No Atom, and no 3G…yet.

Meanwhile, Acer Japan has just confirmed an updated version of the D250. It runs Windows 7 Starter Edition, bumps the resolution up to 1280 by 720, and costs Y46,800 (about $575). It will be available there when Windows 7 arrives on October 22, but there's no word on when it will come to the US (or Australia). [Netbooked and PC World]
