Android continues to make waves in the mobile marketplace. This time it won't be on a smartphone, but will be featured on netbooks produced by Acer. The Android loaded netbooks will become available in the third quarter of 2009, which is exciting for people who either want to try Android or get a netbook. The fact that Android will be the OS will surely cause the netbook to come in at a lower price than those featuring Windows XP. Since it is a netbook, users likely don't need a powerful machine anyway. Netbooks are meant to be portable, and with features like Gmail and Google Docs, it will be able to provide almost anything a user could need in a netbook.
