Acer Will Not Launch Chrome OS Devices next Month

Just last week there were rumours that Acer was planning to launch a couple of Google Chrome OS based devices at Computex in Tapai.

A press release sent out today by Acer now reveals that the company are not going to be launching Chrome OS based netbooks and tablets at Computex. The information says that Acer has no short-term plans for such a product.

It is still expected that some company at Computex will be showing off a Chrome OS based device, although whatever they show will more than likely be current hardware with Chrome OS installed as a beta.

Press release…

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.
