Acer could offer Google's Android operating system on its lastest netbook computers, if that's what customers want.

This will help to reduce the price of the devices, since Android is available from Google for free.
Android was initially developed for mobile phones and is said to be a quick and effective alternative for netbooks.
Netbooks are also available with Linux as well as with Windows XP, which Microsoft licences to netbook manufacturers at a reduced price. A version of Windows 7 is also being designed for netbooks.
The news from Acer came out of Computex, the computer show currently running in Taiwan.
