Acer Bursts Chrome OS Device BubbleLast week, rumors were floating around about the upcoming Acer announcement at Computex regarding Chrome OS device.

Unfortunately, company has issued a press release stating that company has no “short-term plans for such a product”.

However, such device is still plausible in the future, as Acer said: “Acer believes that Google Chrome OS is without doubt an exciting product announcement and deserves it’s full attention as well as an in-depth study of its potential from a consumers perspective.”

Acer Chrome OS Devices are Coming

By | May 14, 2010 | 3 Comments

Acer Chrome OS Devices are ComingIt appears that Acer is planning to launch Chrome OS devices at the Computex Taipei show, which is set to take place from June 1st to June 5th.

As Chrome OS was originally designed for Netbooks, we expect a Netbook of some kind. Although Google said many times that OS can run fine on other devices with ARM processors, such as Smartbooks, Tablets, etc.

Currently, Chrome OS is scheduled for 2010 Q2 launch which pairs fine with the upcoming Acer announcement.
