More Info About Acer’s 8.9″ Budget Laptop/UMPC

Acer 8.9 We’ve been hearing some rumblings about an Acer 8.9″ laptop/UMPC that would compete in the UMPC market for a while.

This little bit was mentioned in a DigiTimes story today:

In additional news, the company will launch its low-cost notebook line in the second quarter this year. The devices will feature an 8.9-inch panel and a choice between flash or hard drive-based storage. Pricing will be set at around NT$15,000 (US$479.25).

This reflects similar comments made around two weeks ago on CNA English News.

In theory, it’ll be similar to the Asus Eee PC or the HP Compaq 2133
