    Acer Branches Out from Microsoft; Plans to Launch an Affordable Android AIO

    While Acer is obviously no stranger to making Android tablets, for the most part their PC business has been all Microsoft. That is about to change, however. Apparently Acer is branching out and plans to make an Android All-in-One PC. Here's a quote with the details,

    The Acer all-in-one (AIO), due to be announced next week, will pack an Intel 3GHz Core i5 4430 "Haswell" processor and run Android.

    Acer confirmed the AIO with CNET on Thursday.

    Expect this trend to pick up steam as PC vendors announce new systems based on Intel's upcoming Haswell and Bay Trail chips. Intel is already dropping not-so-subtle hints that Android laptops running on the Bay Trail chip are on the way and will be priced between $200 and $300.

    Android notebooks? Yep, Intel says, and they'll only cost $200

    Acer's new AIO system will go for less than $400 at some resellers, though most listings put it about $425. Some are higher than $425.
    As you can see, the intel from Intel suggests they too will get in on the action and start offering PC alternatives using Android instead of Windows. With Microsoft so far behind in the mobile world, can they really afford to start losing ground in the PC world as well?

    Anyone who wats to can run Android on a PC using Bluestack. The only thing I don't know how to do us download the app to my desktop. This can get sticky if you want to run things like IrfanView with Filters Unlimited
    Take two tablets and email me in the morning

    Tablets are not a gift from the Gods: They ARE the Gods!
