Acer to Launch Chrome OS Devices in June

VentureBeat cites multiple sources that say Acer will launch Chrome OS devices in Taiwan next month. How many devices or what kind of devices the company plans to show us remains unclear. However, Google's Chrome OS is supposed to be a lightweight operating system for netbooks and (eventually) tablets so hearing the company is going to announce more than one device suggests we could see an Acer tablet next month.

While a Chrome OS tablet from Acer is possible, the company has already said it has plans for Android netbooks. Given that Android is already optimized for touchscreens, logical thinking says it's more likely we'll see Android tablets than Chrome OS tablets. Still, it's nice to dream.

    I don't know if any of you guys ever owned an Acer product..But they make some pretty low quality stuff. Looks like every manufacturer is hopping on the tablet market. Just waiting on Lenovo now.

    I agree some of their stuff is pretty bad, but some of their stuff is good too. Their netbooks are very well built. Not as well built as the ASUS' but still good. And the problems that I have seen with their laptops are no worse than the consumer grade HP stuff.

    Acer's monitors are just fine. Some of them are just ok, but they are always decent, and some are even great.
