Will the 'Smart Netbook' become a trend?

Acer announced this week its Acer Aspire One AOD250, which dual-boots into either Windows or Android. Nice! But what is it?

By definition (admittedly my own), a netbook is a very small laptop that runs a desktop operating system, such as Windows or Linux. A smartbook, on the other hand, is a mobile laptop-like computer that runs a cell phone operating system, such as Android, iPhone OS, Web OS or Windows Mobile.

The Aspire One is both a floor wax and a dessert topping; both a netbook and a smartbook; both a good thing and a bad thing.

It's only a matter of time before a cell-phone operating system and desktop OS are exactly the same....

"Floor wax and a desert topping". One of my favourite SNL bits... well done.
