Acer creating Android smartphones, other devices According to a new report, Acer is planning on producing an Android-based smartphone as well as a "other devices" by this fall, each using the open-source operating system.
"The entire industry is looking at Android," said Acer president and CEO Gianfranco Lanci said. "I think it's too early to say if we're going to see Android on a netbook in the near future," he concluded however, not committing to any particular device.

Recent data suggests that Android is becoming more popular in phones, and the landmark T-Mobile G1 recently sold its one millionth handset.

As previously reported, the first known Android-based netbook is expected to sell for $250 USD and should be available soon.
