“Acer was an early supporter of the Intel Atom Developer Program and we applaud the announcement of Intel AppUp center,” said Gianpiero Morbello, Acer Worldwide Marketing vice president. “Accessing the Intel AppUp Center catalog, we will be able to distribute innovative software downloads to Acer Atom processor-based netbook customers and move to easily support additional Acer customers on any device powered by an Intel processor.”
Intel says the beta store will host applications for both the Microsoft Windows and the open source Moblin-based operating systems, the first operating systems to target the popular netbook computer category powered by the Intel Atom processor. Intel and its partners say they hope to expand the stores to include applications for other categories like handheld CE devices, smartphones, consumer electronic appliances, TVs and other devices based on future Intel processor families.
