Acer recently refreshed its Aspire One D250 netbook, replacing Windows XP with both Windows 7 and Android. Yes, that’s right, Android on a commercially available netbook. The D250 is a true dual... boot solution, offering users the ability to boot into Windows 7 or Android during startup.

This has to be one of the best mods we have seen in a long time. A man takes apart his Dell Mini netbook and converts it into a functional and rather large Mini 3i mobile phone, complete with the OPhone... Android OS.

Computex looks like a really good show, and ECS have on display a prototype of their 8.1 inch T800 netbook offering. The prototype device is not in working order, but the build is comparable to what... the finished version will be like. It looks wonderful and would appear to resemble the Sony Vaio P a bit. Even though the T800 is a puny 800g (1.76lb) light, it still manages to pack a 2.5 inch SATA...
