It’s been a long and bumpy road for the Acer Aspire One Android netbook since it was first shown off in the Far East earlier this year. Not only had it been shelved, but Google’s even let slip of a better OS made specifically for netbooks. But the dual-booting lil’ laptop has finally wound up here in the UK, and we’ve got the photos to prove it.
We found the Windows and Android toting Acer Aspire One D250 netbook tucked away at Acer’s showcase this morning and took it for a little spin on Google’s OS. Build wise, there’s absolutely nothing new, but Android on a laptop is certainly “interesting”. It’s good to see Firefox on there, but the drag to pull up the shortcut menu doesn’t translate well to a mouse and keyboard system. Why not just have everything on there in the first place? There’s space on a 10-inch screen. But photo viewing on the Acer Aspire One Android netbook was ace though, so there’s a silver lining at least.

We’ve not got any details on the UK launch for the Acer Aspire One Android netbook just yet, but it’d be quite a slap in the face to tease it in Blighty and not release it here. Acer’s top dog, Gianfranco Lanci, is on stage right now bringing the smacktalk to Dell and HP, so expect more details on the Acer Aspire One Android netbook shortly.
