Acer 10-inch Aspire One

The president of computer maker Acer, Scott Lin, said the company will launch its 10-inch Aspire One netbooks in February or March, according to a Tuesday report. Currently, Acer sells only 8.9-inch Aspire One netbooks, which make up the majority of the company's portable PC sales in its home market of Taiwan. The netbook comes bundled with a high-speed wireless data network faster than speeds offered by 3G network and is bundled with a data service from Taiwan Mobile (TWM).

Lin also announced average prices of the netbooks are expected to end by about 10 percent by the end of 2008, with the mid-range netbooks, priced at between $900 and $1,200 experiencing the largest price drops.

At the IT Month 2008 show kicking off next week, Acer will also launch a 14.1-inch LED notebook priced at under the equivalent of $1,200. This will be the first of a range of LED notebooks due for a release in 2009 and is set to include 12.1-, 13.3- and 15.6-inch models. A more traditional 13.3-inch notebook PC along with an all-in-one PC will also make their market debuts at the show under the Gateway brand to complete the notebook lineup in the current range.
