Last week we told you that Acer was going to be showing off a Chrome OS based nextbook next month at Computex 2010, it turns out it was just a rumor and Acer has released a statement saying that this have no plans to launch one anytime soon.
Previously Acer had confirmed they were working on a Chrome OS netbook, so we guess they are still ironing out the bugs on it, and will probably launch it later in the year.
Manno, 17 May 2010 – Despite recent rumours in the press regarding the launch of Chrome OS based netbooks at Computex, Acer today confirms that it has no short-term plans for such a product.
Acer believes that Google Chrome OS is without doubt an exciting product announcement and deserves it’s full attention as well as an in-depth study of its potential from a consumers perspective.
Acer is naturally interested in any product or service that enhances the overall experience of its products and will of course be following the development and progress of Google Chrome and the evolution of Google’s overall product strategy very closely.
We still could see a Chrome OS based Netbook at Computex 2010, I guess it just wont be from Acer.
