Acer CEO confirms smartphone, is coy on netbooks

So we know there's an Acer Android smartphone out there, and we may see it this fall. But we've yet to have any sort of semi-official statement. That ends today, with this nugget by CEO Gianfranco Lanci to PC World [via Giz]:

"We are testing Android on a lot of different solutions," he said. "We are working on an Android solution for the smartphone."

Cool. But netbooks? Not so fast, says Lanci.

"I think it's too early to say if we're going to see Android on a netbook in the near future."

While that certainly doesn't sound like a denial, neither does it come off as a glowing endorsement. We'll just have to wait and see.
