Acer shows off Windows Media Center Embedded at IDF


Among the various demos at IDF today, Acer showed off its Revo 2 sporting a special treat — Windows Media Center Embedded. A quick perusal of the menus showed off the same live TV / internet streaming video integration we’ve come to expect from Media Center, although obviously running on a simpler dedicated box. Acer’s aiming for availability in the first half of 2011, we’ll see if this setup can do any damage in the set-top box / media streamer wars.
