Having signed the Open Handset Alliance, Acer has wasted no time in launching its first Aspire One netbook that operates on the Android operating system. Due to its free open source, the netbook will have a fully customizable mobile platform with access to a host of third party Android developed applications. The first Acer Aspire One netbook with Android is expected to begin shipping in Q3 2009.
Thankfully we won't have to wait as long for the Acer F900 smartphone that is available now. Although it's not compatible with the Android market, the F900 does sport a large 3.8-inch VGA screen, GPS and HSDPA and HSUPA connectivity as well as one-touch access to a host of pre-installed Google mobile services including, Google Search, Google Maps and YouTube.
The Acer F900 is available now for an RRP of £429 (inc. VAT).
