Acer Backing out from Android Project?

Just after a month Google announced its new product, Chrome OS, Acer has decided to backout not to speak about the launch of its android based netbook.

Back in June, the demo of Android OS on the netbook didn’t quite appeal to the people. There is not much demand for the android based netbooks in the market, if you see the trend. Even though, Android seems strong for the smartphones, its integration with the netbook is not.

Asustek too is not quite enthusiastic about developing more Android based netbooks until 2010. Though Asus plans to release its products,Eee PC T91, Eee PC T101, which are planned to release by year end.

Does Acer and Asus feel that installing Chrome OS in their netbooks will increase their sale? I think yes. Android for netbook was a tweaked OS and i’m not sure how strong it would hold the netbook and its softwares. Whereas, Chrome OS by Google is a dedicated OS for netbooks.
