Dual-Booters FTW

Do you want to try using a computer that runs on Android? But maybe you're a bit uneasy and want to fall back on Windows 7 when you need it? That's exactly what Acer is offering.

Acer has just launched the Aspire One D250 and D260, which lets users see how it feels to use Android to power their everyday computing, but also lets them switch over to Windows 7 in case they really don't like that.

The company announced today that it will continue this strategy and use the dual-boot feature on all upcoming dual-core netbooks, according to PC Mag.

It's a fairly easy process to implement, because Android doesn't force manufacturers to pay any licensing fees. The end result is more flexibility for users without extra cost for the manufacturer.

Android is expanding out in a big way, with no fewer than a dozen tablets in the works and set for launch within the next year. It will also likely be coming to more netbooks as well.

Meanwhile, Blackberry has its own tablet coming out and HP will be using Palm's WebOS system to power its upcoming tablet. It's a war of the mobile operating systems on full-size devices now, and anyone could win.
