Acer prepares Android tablets

Written by Slobodan Simic

For April next year

Acer has organized quite an event today in New York showing a full bag of new products including Android tablets. Unfortunately, Acer is one of those companies that decided to launch their own tablets sometime during next year, in Acer's case, it's April 2011.

If things can be judged by Acer's event in New York, we might see both 10.1-inch and 7-inch Acer tablets as of April next year. Of course, both will be running on Google's Android OS, 2.2 Froyo for now.

The 10.1-inch tablet is packed in a 13.3mm thick case and it has a 1280x800 resolution screen, full Flash 10.1 support, dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and Acer's own User Interface. The rest of the features include HDMI output for some 1080p fun, 5MP rear camera and HD front facing camer, a ten-point multi-touch system and integrated Gyroscope.

The 7-inch version has a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm CPU while the rest of the features are pretty much identical to the 10.1-incher. Both of course pack WiFi and 3G.

You can check out more pictures over at Engadget.

too bad that stuff is android..
so hopeless migration with ms-office..
just like my android phone wich i quickly brought back to get a windows mobile phone :)

that seriously one bigass downside of android..
i know google should try to imitate microsoft.. but fact is that a LOT of people use microsoft windows on their comps.. and it just makes stuff so much easier if everything would be compatible with the same platform

For a 7 inch tablet a dual-core Snapdragon and Android would be just fine, but for a 10 inch tablet I would prefer a "proper" OS, like Windows 7 or at least "Chrome OS".
