Acer releasing several tablets ranging from 5 to 10 inches.
Engadget is live blogging from an Acer event going on today. Acer has announced several tablets that are due out in April of next year. They range from a 4.7 inch tablet to a 10 inch one. With several months still before these are to even ship who knows what may happen in the world of tablets. By then Blackberry may have overtaken the market, or the market may have crashed and burned. Is is also possible that consumers shun every tablet besides the iPad. Our guess is that the 2nd generation iPad will be out by April so Acer needs to make sure they don’t fall behind.
Here is what they are saying about their tablets so far:
The 10.1 inch model in what they called the “Google Android Tablet OS” (Honeycomb!?) with their Acer UI on top. It will have a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, support for Flash 10.1, a 5MP rear-facing camera, as well as a lower resolution front-facing camera, and HDMI output.
Acer will also introduce a 4.8 inch mini-tablet with a 1024 x 480 pixel display, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, HD video recording, 6-axis motion sensing, and an LED flash. And last Acer has a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel tablet with a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU in the works.
