Acer to Announce Android-Powered AIO Next Week
Next week, Acer is expected to announce a new All-In-One (AIO) PC that runs the open-source Android operating system. The system will be powered by an Intel Core i5 4430, based on the new Haswell architecture, and will retail for around $400.
The system will be configured with just 1GB of RAM, and may offer as little as 8GB of internal storage due to the reduced hardware requirements of the Android OS. There is indication that adoption of the Android OS will continue to increase into space previously dominated by Microsoft's Windows OS, particularly after the advent of Android-powered laptops and netbooks expected in the near future.
