Preorder Acer’s Android-Based Aspire One D250 Netbook on Amazon

acer_aspire_one_001The first Android-based netbook is now officially available for pre-sale at Amazon.com. To be completely up-front, the Aspire One D250 is actually a dual-boot device with Android and Windows XP Home. So what’s in the box?  For $349.99, you get a 10.1″ screen, 1.66GHz Intel N280 Atom Processor, 1GB DDR2 SDRAM, and 160GB Hard Drive.  For the full list of specs, head to the pre-order page.

This version of the Aspire One offers dual operating system boot capabilities, enabling you to choose between the familiar Windows XP environment and the leading-edge Android mobile platform. Designed specifically for mobile devices and applications, Android lets you boot up and shut down quickly–saving you time when in a rush and boosting productivity. And you can download innovative, user-friendly and affordable applications, from productivity titles and multimedia apps to games and cool widgets.

The $349 price tag puts it right in line with other netbooks.  Much like other netbooks, it comes with WiFi and ethernet, but no 3G capability.  It will be interesting to see how apps run within the Android environment.

Anyone looking to grab one of these?
