As you may have heard, the 10.1-inch Aspire One D250 dual-boots between Android and, err, Windows XP. It has a 1.66GHz Atom 280 processor, 6-cell battery rated for 9 hours, and is now up for pre-order on Amazon for $350.

Other specs are unchanged from the current model, including 1GB memory, 160GB hard disk, and an on screen resolution of 1024 x 600 driven by Intel GMA graphics. No Nvidia Ion graphics, and no 3G…yet.


Meanwhile, Acer Japan has just confirmed an updated version of the D250. It runs Windows 7 Starter Edition, bumps the resolution up to 1280 by 720, and costs Y46,800 (about $553). It will be available there when Windows 7 arrives on October 22, but there's no word on when it will come to the U.S. [Netbooked and PC World]
