The Final Word on the Acer DX241H Is…

flattr this!

Inconclusive. I hesitated even posting it, and I should probably move it into the blog’s Rumor category. Why did I run it? Because two sites (ConceivablyTech and Heise.de) were already claiming that Acer Germany had said that this was a Chrome OS product, leading me to believe that it would show up at CeBIT in Germany next week.

acerdx241hAcer’s not denying it.

Of course, TechCrunch’s MG Siegler did the work of actually asking Google, and their response is that they’re focused on releasing Chrome OS laptops. But still Acer is neither confirming nor denying the fact that this form factor could indeed be available for Chrome OS. With the amount of information in the report, along with the fact that Acer already has a similar device on the market, I still don’t think it’s a stretch to say Acer has intentions on selling the DX241H.

Indeed, ARMDevices got some video of a variation on the device form factor while visiting with Freescale Semiconductor at CES 2011. For some reason, I don’t believe that a gadget like this would come with Windows. Rather, it wou something more lightweight like Chrome OS or even Android would make more sense.

My reaction is that I’m still surprised if Acer has any intentions of releasing something other than a notebook with Chrome OS. But the company can do what it wants; especially if it feels that something like the DX241H will sell.
