Leading into the 2009 holiday shopping season, Acer introduced three laptops and even an Android-running smartphone called Liquid, which will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor. While the Liquid announcement was a teaser, without pricing or timeline details, Acer was more generous about the laptops. The Acer One AOD250 is a 10.1-inch dual-boot model running both Android and Windows XP Home. The Aspire 5738PG is the company's first notebook to feature a screen with multitouch capabilities, and the Aspire Timeline AS1810TZ is an 11.6-inch addition to Acer's Timeline series. Acer additionally announced that it will expand its Timeline series with additional models featuring Microsoft's Windows 7 and Intel CULV dual-core processors. While the Aspire One is now available, the 5738PG and the Timeline model will arrive on Oct. 22 with the launch of Windows 7.
