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.
Acer's monitors are just fine. Some of them are just ok, but they are always decent, and some are even great.
That's like sayign that having an apple makes an orange redundant becuase they are both fruits.
here ya go mate:
I was under the impression that the OS in ChromeOS stood for Operting System.
There is Chrome the browser, and there is Chrome the operating system. Both are made by Google. The browser is for desktops and laptops, and the OS is for tablets and netbooks.
There is also Android the operating system, which is also made by Google. This OS is for smart phones.
I think the java code restriction is a good move. Keeps the system stable without placing hardly any restrictions on what a developer can do, and at the same time keeps costs down for Google since the java platform is already available and free.
The best thing about a chrome or linux based netbook vs windows is you save several hundred bucks on the OS license. Netbooks don't have the hardware to run games so they shouldn't be a consideration. I think it's brilliant actually. Having said that - I don't have, need, or want a netbook. Maybe if I traveled more or something; but my current lifestyle doesn't warrant such a device.
Dude is the third poster HIGH ?
or he just means HIGH QUALITY HP/COMPAQ STUFF WHICH DIES JUST AFTER WARRENTY IS EXPIRED.
I have 2 acer notebooks and each of my friend has the same. NOT A SINGLE PROBLEM in one year.
