Acer Android netbook rumor returns, suggests it will be available for the holiday season

Up to this point we have seen more than our fair share, or for that matter, needed rumors dealing with an Android-based netbook from Acer. And now once again that rumor is back.

The latest is coming from Gizmodo, who are reporting that a dual-boot (Android and Windows XP) Aspire One will become available “in time for the holidays.” Otherwise, the details are still pretty light to non-existent.

The report from Gizmodo further goes on to suggest that the Aspire One will be of the 10-inch variety and retail for around $350. Which happens to be the current price of the Windows XP based Aspire One.

All things considered I am interested to see what happens if this model is released. After all it will be dual-boot which is likely to confuse some people. But at the same time, this seems to be a pretty safe way for Acer to release an Android powered netbook, at least they can safely judge the demand.
