Acer Planning an Android Netbook For Q3 of This Year

Acer has become the first company to announce intentions to manufacture an Android netbook, coming by Q3 of this year.

In human terms, that means it'll ship by October, but possibly as early as this month. Their announcement is fairly vague, more of a statement of intention than a product press release. Will it be based on a typical Atom/Intel platform, or look more like the ASUS Snapdragon test unit we saw yesterday? How will they adapt Android's interface to suit netbook use, if at all? The questions! They press! [WSJ]
