Acer is hyping things up with a teaser page on their website for the unveiling of a new "notebook PC concept" to take place New York later today.

Clearly not with the concept of a

world wide

web, whatever is to be revealed, described by Acer as an "innovative, industry-first, laptop design" will not be shown in the UK until a press event on Thursday 20 March.

So, everyone in Great Britain will just have to close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears and hum loudly until Acer's press department deigns to show the product to UK journos...

Either that, or Pocket-lint will bring you all the news from the US event later, and will then be attending the UK launch in the flesh and will provide you with more exciting hands-on info then...
