Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci recently spoke about the future of the tablet segment, as seen through the eyes of a company that’s fresh in the business. He claims that eventually the slates made by Acer will take over the iPad sales, although that prediction seems unlikely now. We remind you that iPad owns over 95% of the tablet segment.

Gianfranco Lanci admitted that the iPad is hugely successful and has a great market response, but it’s slowing down lately. He goes on to say that Acer’s products might reach a global market share of 10-20% and become the market leader soon enough. The CEO is convinced that the 7 and 10.1 inch tablets that will run Android 3.0 and feature 1GHz/1.2GHz dual core processors will make it big.

The specs will also include 5MP cameras with video capture support and 1280 x 800 pixel resolutions. Let’s see if Acer manages to surpass at least other Android slate makers this year.
