Next Generation Acer Aspire One Netbooks Will Feature Dual Core & Dual OS (Android/Windows 7)

Dual core processors aren’t the only new “dual” aspect about Acer’s next generation of netbooks. Acer announced that their upcoming Aspire One netbooks will feature dual core Intel Atom 550 processors and the ability to run both Windows 7 and Android.

Dual-OS to become a standard for Acer dual-core netbooks

The specific purpose for this dual operating system strategy was not discussed in DigiTimes’ article. However, Android will undoubtably be used to provide a fast boot environment that lets an Aspire One netbook user quickly check email or browse the web without having to wait for Windows 7 boot process to complete.
