Acer Aspire One AOD255 Dual-Boots Windows XP and Android, Will Cost $375

Acer's plans for Android haven't been a secret, but we have to say that this little netbook, with just enough of Google's mobile Operating System (OS) on it to seem pretty interesting, is quite the treat. It utilizes Microsoft's Windows XP as the main OS, but then it has the ability to quick boot into Android. You'll be able to achieve this with Acer's configuration manager, which is pre-installed on the system.

The netbook itself features the standard 10.1-inch display. Inside, you'll find Intel's Atom N450 processor. You'll also find 1GB of DDR2 DRAM, and a 160GB hard drive. Unfortunately, out of the box you'll only get a 3-cell battery, but Acer will happily sell you a 6-cell model for an additional $95. There aren't a lot more details to pass along, except for the price. At $375, it's not necessarily a steal, but it won't break the bank, either. There's no word on official worldwide release, but that should change soon enough.
