Acer launches Aspire One
Dubai, June 14, 2008
Acer celebrates more than 30 years’ experience in innovating technologies with the launch of Aspire One, Acer’s first Internet device.
The Aspire One is an all-new communication device designed to provide a true mobile and wireless experience through continuous access to the Internet no matter where you are.
Thanks to the Internet, people the world over can be everywhere regardless of time and space. There are no real limits to online social interaction apart from our own imagination and Acer has built the Aspire one with a single goal in mind: enrich people’s lives through simplicity, giving them immediate access to the Internet and easier communication across their entire online social networks.
The Aspire One was designed to get you online in no time at all and thanks to the Linpus Linux Lite operating system, start up and shut down times are reduced to the minimum.
With the Aspire One running on Linux environment, the simplicity continues with the intuitive and specifically optimized software interface.
For example the specially developed one Mail software application simply and clearly manages up to six separate email accounts in a single window while the Messenger program can simultaneously handle the most popular IM accounts. Features like these make the Aspire one the beating heart of your online world.
The form factor of the Aspire One comes from asking ourselves what people really need to fully exploit “anywhere communication”.
To start with, product design is essential. Miniaturisation of core components has reduced the dimensions of the Aspire one to less than the average diary and at the same time has brought down its weight to below one kilo, leaving a sleek, light and comfortable footprint that is truly mobile.
Then, the input interface: another crucial element for a smooth Internet experience. The Aspire one features a 95 per cent full-sized keyboard for natural, easy typing just like you’re used to.
Finally, the Aspire One is built for Internet navigation and delivers the ideal balance between optimal viewing of online content and reduced LCD size: its 8.9” screen fits the 1024*600 web resolution to perfection without sacrificing clarity, compactness and light weight
Acer’s mission - breaking the barriers between people and technology - is brought to life through intense and consistent product research and design that translates advanced technological tools into solutions that can be easily utilized by users of all levels.
“We want the tools we develop to be truly useful in the real world.” said senior corporate vice-president Acer Group and president of ITGO Acer Inc, Jim Wong.
“No matter how advanced technology becomes, simplicity is all that matters. Acer, empowering people,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
