| Acer has officially denied rumors that 
| said it would show its first netbooks 
| running Chrome OS at the upcoming Computex 
| show in Taipei next month. The denial

| Google is also working on a netbook 
| version of the Android operating system as 
| well, and Acer has committed to an Android 
| netbook, so it had been unclear how the PC 
| maker would have differentiated between an 
| Android netbook and Chrome OS netbook. For 
| Google's part, at least, the search 
| leader's co-founder, Sergey Brin, has said 
| that eventually, Google plans to converge 
| Android and Chrome OS into a single 
| platform for netbooks.
