Acer Android Netbook Pre-Order At Amazon


The mythical Android Netbook… a creature which has for over a year lived amongst unicorns, hobbits, the lochness monster and big foot. But today there was a spotting that might prove better than any other evidence… the Android Netbook truly does exist in the land of Acer. It’s no longer fantasy folks because deep in the Amazon jungle it’s been spotted.

That’s right… you can now pre-order the Acer Android Netbook at Amazon:


Not a bad looking little netbook at all, is it? And with Android a great personality to match! You’ll have to fork over $350 to pre-order this puppy but being one of the first legit Android Netbook owners? Priceless.


Acer kept the vast majority of specs on this netbook consistent with their current model. Here are some of the specs listed by Amazon:

  • 1.66GHz Intel N280 Atom Processor
  • 1024MB DDR2 SDRAM Single Channel Memory
  • 160GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM), 802.11b/g Wireless
  • 10.1″ WSVGA Acer CrystalBrite LED Display, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950
  • Dual Boot Operating Systems: Android or Windows XP Home, 6-cell Li-ion Battery (5800 mAh)
  • Product Dimensions:8 x 10.2 x 1 inches ; 2.8 pounds

They list it as “first available” from September 28th which means this slipped by us for quite awhile, did it not? Well the secrets out of the bag, time to work some Android Netbook magic!

  1. Android on netbooks?
    Sucks – Android was made for phones, not for netbooks.. for low resolution devices.

    Thats why Google is developing ChromeOS – which I think will be great. But netbooks should stay with Windows XP or Windows 7 or Ubuntu Netbook Remix.


  2. when can i put android on my current AAO??
    haha I NEED IT

  3. I want to know how quick it is at booting Android (from cold to a browser running). If it’s more than 10 seconds then I’ll wait for Google OS.

  4. with the 1.66GHz intel N280 it will fly.
    the cool thing about the n280 is that it is hyper-threaded. thus, acting as a dual core.

    now if you have a light weight UI running on a badass processor like that…:)

  5. Android os on a computer?
    this just doesn’t seem like a good Idea for me.
    maybe if they use a version of android that’s morecomputer like.

    then again it’s a netbook:
    it might be perfect for people who don’t need the functionality of an actual computer and just need the web

  6. I’m pretty sure Google OS is just going to be, you know, another Linux version.

  7. See you when you’re proved wrong, dave.
