Acer's new Aspire One D260 goes on sale in AU this week for $449; a 10.1-inch netbook that ships in a dual boot configuration with both Windows 7 (Starter Edition) and Android 2.1. A menu pops up at startup that gives the user the ability to choose which one to boot into.


Acer says the netbook is capable of booting into Android in 15 seconds, and gives the unit up to 8 hours of battery life from the six cell battery when in this OS.
