Acer Launches Dual OS Aspire One Happy Netbook

Acer has rolled out its Aspire One Happy netbook in the UK.

The netbook comes in a variety of vibrant colours - Candy Pink, Lavender Purple, Lime Green and Hawaii Blue - and has the ability to switch between Windows 7 and Android 2.1 - without the need to restart the device. Users will be able to move seamlessly between Windows 7 and Android 2.1 OS.

Priced at £250, Acer is targeting the netbook at hi-tech youngsters.

“Add a touch of femininity and playfulness to your life with the Candy Pink version or show off the refinement, elegance and uniqueness of the Lavender model; type away on the Lime Green one, brimming with life and energy just like you, or feel the freshness of the ocean and the freedom of the sky with the Hawaii Blue version,” the company says.

The hardware specs are not bad for its price, either. It comes with LED backlit 10.1 inch screen, Wi-Fi connectivity, support for 3G and 250 GB of memory. The netbook, which weighs 1.25 kg, will come with a choice of Intel Atom N450 or dual-core Intel Atom N550 processors.
