Acer to roll out 10-inch Aspire One netbook next year


Don’t be surprised to hear that Acer is planning a 10-inch version of its wildly popular Aspire One netbook. It’s the next logical evolution, after all. Plus, you hate surprises. Perhaps you could be surprised that it’s taken Acer this long to build a 10-inch version.

DigiTimes is reporting that Acer will be rolling out the 10-inch Aspire One early next year — likely February or March. That appears to be in Taiwan, though, so we’ll see how long it takes those models to make it here. The company will also finally start producing 13.3-inch notebooks next year under the Gateway brand.

No pricing or information yet, except that “prices are expected to continue to drop” for notebooks in Taiwan, which seem to generally be priced about 20% higher than here.
