Acer to Build the First Google Chrome Laptop

by Developer.com Staff

Acer CEO told Digitimes that they will be the first to start selling laptops with the open source Google Chrome OS next year.

According to story on Digitimes, Acer Chairman JT Wang said they would be the first to sell a laptop with Google's Chrome OS installed.

This isn't the first time Acer has built a laptop with a Google operating system. They were the first to sell a Google Android-based computer.

Despite less-than-enthusiastic demand for the Android laptop, Acer has been developing the Chrome-based product since mid-2009, according to Digitimes.

Wang told Digitimes that Acer plans to start selling the new Google-powered laptops in the second half of 2010.
