android-logoAfter our early story of Acer netbooks embracing Android OS, we along with the whole tech world, were interested in  following up with any further news on the same. As the first news is out, it looks wow-fully interesting. Atom N270 with a 10.1- Aspire one D250 was taken for the test at COMPUTEX by Jim Wang,  Global operations president, Acer. The whole boot up process including the complete desktop load time took about 18 seconds at max. And the shut down was instantaneous, hardly 2 seconds! The demo machine had Wi-Fi connectivity, 3G or WiMAX products powered by the WAN.

In that show, they used Android to open a standard browser, YouTube and also google docs to open a power point presentation. So without further ado, let me put up some screen shots
