Acer To Launch Chrome OS Netbook Next Month

Barence writes “Acer is preparing to launch devices based on Google’s Chrome OS at next month’s Computex trade show, according to reports. Multiple sources have apparently told VentureBeat that the company will show off devices at the Taipei show at the beginning of June. It doesn’t specify what the devices are, although given that Chrome OS is primarily designed for low-powered laptops and Acer’s status as the world’s second biggest PC maker, it seems inconceivable that the devices won’t be netbooks. Meanwhile, Google is considering implementing a Coverflow interface into Chrome OS. One design adheres fairly closely to Apple’s template, and allows users to flip through applications and web pages with ‘hotkeys and swiping gestures.’ Favicons will be displayed beneath the pages, allowing users to click these and head straight to the application.”
