Apparently Acer is gearing up to launch several new devices that will use Chrome OS, Google's web-focused operating system designed primarily for netbooks. It is not known at this point what the devices will be exactly. While Chrome OS was developed with netbooks in mind, there's been whispers that it might be introduced on other mobile device types including ARM processor based products, too.
