Acer has 4.8”, 7” and 10” Android Tablets planned for April 2011

Posted on 23 November 2010 By Steve Chippy Paine


Acer announced a set of Android tablets this afternoon that are sure to make people pause before they put an order in for the holiday season. The 7” Tablet looks like a belter and you can be sure that Acer will compete heavily on price.

The 7” model on the left (neither model has a name yet) will come with a dual-core 1.2Ghz Snapdragon CPU,  a 1280×800 resolution screen, 3G, Wi-FI  and we hear, Android 2.2 with Flash 10.1. With front and rear cameras it looks like it will be suitable for Google application certification so we should see the Market and Google applications on this.

The 10”er on the right above, looks to be aimed at the home market and will also be a dual-core device. HDMI-out, dual-cams and ten-point multitouch, indicate a high-end experience. Interestingly, reports are saying that this one has a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU at 1Ghz. Maybe there’s a gaming slant here.

There’s also a 4.8” super-wide-screen device with 1024×480 on the cards. The strange resolution might be very good for landscape browsing.

Without full specs and pricing it’s difficult to position the devices but it looks like Acer is taking the tablet market seriously because Windows Tablets were announced too. I can’t believe all these devices are going to make it to the same markets but CeBIT in March will certainly be interesting!

    the 10″ looks quite beautiful in those Engadget hands-on pics, love the brushed backs on them as well.

    whats up with the button placement on the 7″, all i see is a home button.

    so is the 7″ more powerful than the 10″?

    I think April 2011 is to long time to wheat this should be release at the beginning of the year.
