Acer Planning 10in Netbook

But then, who isn't?

Like it or loath it, and throughout the TR staff there are those of us that do both, there’s no denying that the Acer Aspire One is the best-selling netbook around. Come February or March next year, the 8.9in system is set to get a 10in big brother, according to President of Acer Taiwan, Scott Lin.

No information about the system, other than its planned existence, is mentioned by Lin, as reported by DigiTimes. It seems safe to assume we’ll see a 1,024 x 600 resolution screen, 1.6GHz Atom CPU and probably a standard hard drive, rather than solid state storage. Going by the evidence of the Aspire One, it seems reasonable to assume Acer will rival the Samsung NC10, our current favourite 10.2in netbook, on price not features,

A little speculation, though, suggests features such as an HDSPA option and a relatively small standard battery with an upgrade option, as sported by the 8.9in version, are likely to be boasted by the larger netbook, too.

The question on all of our lips, though, must surely be “what will Acer call it?”
