Acer will not launch a Chrome OS netbook at Computex
Manno, 17 May 2010 Despite recent rumours in the press regarding the launch of Chrome OS based netbooks at Computex, Acer today confirms that it has no short-term plans for such a product.
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 is naturally interested in any product or service that enhances the overall experience of its products and will of course be following the development and progress of Google Chrome and the evolution of Google’s overall product strategy very closely.
This is definitely sad news for users who were eagerly waiting for the launch of a Chrome OS based device. The Computex is just two weeks away now. The event is scheduled to start from May 31st and continue until June 5th. Even though Acer won’t be launching a Chrome OS based netbook at the Computex, we can expect them to announce an Android based tablet at the event.
