Acer to Launch 7- and 10-inch Tablets This Year

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 2 comments

HP's Android tablet might be shelved for now, but Acer has plans to release two slates powered by the Google OS before the year is out.

Digitimes reports that Acer will launch 7- and 10-inch Android tablets later this year. Both will run Android 2.2 (or Froyo) and be ARM-based. With the advantage of Android 2.2's Flash support, Digitimes reports that these two devices will be multimedia tablets with entertainment capabilities and will debut in Q4. Acer is said to already be in talks with Far EasTone Telecommunications, which suggests the device will have 3G and, dare we hope, may be available subsidized from carriers?

The tablets will be separate to the e-ink ereader Acer introduced in May and the full-color, Qualcomm-powered Android reader it showed off last month at Computex.

    This is what I want - an actual iPad competitor - running on Android. Now just make sure the cpu runs at 1Ghz or more an I'll be happy.
