Update 2: I should add that there’s an SKU with an Atom N570 processor. Full specs and press photos added in.
Update: Added our hands on video of the Acer Aspire One D257 below. It should have all the typical netbook specs – a dual core Atom N550 processor, 10.1″ 1024 x 600 glossy display, 1GB of RAM and Windows 7 Starter. The non-working mockup on display had a 3-cell battery put the placard mentions 8 hours of battery, which would be for a 6-cell battery model. Nothing much outstanding with the design and sports typical netbook ports. No word on pricing or availability. So much for fewer redundant models this year Acer!
Acer has launched at new netbook at MWC – the Aspire One D257. Unfortunately it only exists in a press release and there’s no mention on what platform (Intel? AMD?) this runs on. We’re hoping it shows up in the following days. Design wise, it seems like a very subtle evolution of the D255. Some clear changes – the power button seems to have moved to the left screen hinge, the trackpad is longer invisible and the lid gets a ripple image. It’ll come in a variety of colors including blue (pictured) and bronze / brown. No word on pricing or availability either.
