Acer will be pushing lots of new tablets in 2011. But how do they look today against the Galaxy Tab and the iPad?
Last week Acer revealed its line of tablets in all sizes. There were the usual 10.1-inch models plus the new 7-inch form factor. The two forms also run differing hardware and now there's word from Taiwan that AMD's C-50 APU will be powering at least one of the models.
Digitimes reports that the AMD C-50 consumes only 9W of power and has an integrated Radeon HD 6250 graphics chip. Such a chip could power the 10.1-inch tablet running Windows.
Acer will undoubtedly have an extensive line of configurations with mixes between Android and Windows, running on AMD C-50, Qualcomm Snapdragon, and Nvidia Tegra 2.
Unfortunately, Acer won't be shipping any of its tablets until Q1/Q2 of 2011. In fact, the company has yet to come up with marketing names for its tablet products.
What we do know, however, is what they look like. Check out the Acer prototypes below and check out the size comparisons between the currently existing 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab and the 9.7-inch Apple iPad.
