Oh, what's this? Acer officially saying it will not launch a Chrome OS device at Computex or in the "short term," just like our sources told us a few days ago? Unfortunately, that's exactly what's going on. Like we said last week, Google's other operating system just doesn't look like it's ready for prime time yet, and it's a little premature to expect devices running Chrome OS to "launch" in just two weeks -- although we're sure we'll see someone throw an early Chromium build on a new tablet or netbook, and show it off at the upcoming Taipei computer show. Of course, we are expecting Android tablets and smartbooks to be in full force at the show, and we'll be there hunting down the best ones. Hit the break for Acer's official Chrome comment.

Acer will not launch a Chrome OS netbook at Computex

Manno, 17 May 2010 – Despite recent rumours in the press regarding the launch of Chrome OS based netbooks at Computex, Acer today confirms that it has no short-term plans for such a product.

Acer believes that Google Chrome OS is without doubt an exciting product announcement and deserves it's full attention as well as an in-depth study of its potential from a consumers perspective.

Acer is naturally interested in any product or service that enhances the overall experience of its products and will of course be following the development and progress of Google Chrome and the evolution of Google's overall product strategy very closely.
