Acer Plans to Launch a Chrome OS Netbook in Late 2010

Acer Plans to Launch a Chrome OS Netbook in Late 2010: "

Can’t wait to try out Google’s Chrome OS on an actual netbook? You might have to wait until the second half of 2010, as that’s when Acer – the first company that announced the development of a Chrome-based netbook – plans to release theirs.

Digitimes reports that Acer has been developing the netbook since mid-2009. If you remember, Acer was the first company to launch a dual-boot Android/Windows netbook, which was quickly forgotten, partly due to the fact that Chrome OS arrived and kicked Android back to where it belongs – the smartphone world.

Chrome OS – Google’s try to reinvent the browser as the operating system – has attracted a lot of interest, but we’re yet to see how the users will react to it when they try to use it on an everyday basis.
