Acer Aspire One AOD255 Netbook Features Dual-OS Platform

Acer has unveiled its latest Aspire One netbook that comes installed with two OS platforms – an Android as a quick-boot OS and another Windows 7 as the main operating system. The netbook is reportedly equipped with an ‘Acer Configuration Manager for Android‘ that will decide which OS to boot the computer with.

Even without the OS jugglery, the netbook is impressive. The device comes with a 10.1-inches display and is powered by an Intel Atom N450 processor. Applications run on an 1GB DDR2 DRAM and the device contains a storage space of close to 160GB. The base model comes with a 3-cell battery pack though another model with a 6-cell battery comes at an additional cost of $95.

The Acer Aspire One AOD255 netbook is retailing at a price of $375. Though the device is presently on sale at a Taiwan computer show, there is no word on when the device will formally launch outside.
