Speaking to ZDNet and then to Pocket-lint, Acer directors (unintentionally) revealed Windows 7 release date; twice.
Speaking about the company's new line of all-in-one PCs, Acer European President Massimo D'Angelo said that "it won't have Windows 7 pre-loaded. We [Acer] won't be actually selling it a day before the 23rd October."
Not to leave room for speculations, almost at the same time Acer UK MD Bobby Watkins told Pocket-lint that "23rd October is the date the Windows 7 will be available. There is a 30 day upgrade time so that customers don't wait to buy a new computer, so if you buy during that 30 day period, you'll get a free upgrade to Windows 7."
