"Acer announced that it's bringing Google Android to its line of netbooks. It's planning to release an Acer netbook with Google Android installed in the third quarter of 2009.

"This is a major announcement: right now, Acer offers a variety of netbooks under its Aspire One line and they all have Windows running natively when shipped. For the first time, it's Google - not Linux - that will take Microsoft on in the PC space. And by the sound of things, Acer wants to see Android take off.

""Netbooks are designed to be compact in size and easy to connect to the Internet wherever you go," Jim Wong, Acer’s president of IT products, said in a statement. "The Android operating system offers incredibly fast wireless connection to the Internet. For this reason, Acer has decided to develop Android Netbooks for added convenience to our customers."
