Acer has just announced that it’s preparing two or maybe even 3 tablets for debut in the first half of 2011. They also hope that in the following years they’ll replace all netbooks with tablets, especially the 7 inch models. Taiwan sales manager Lu Bing-Hsian is claiming that these new devices will run Android OS, but without mentioning a version.
The CPU of choice for the new Acer products will be Intel’s fresh Sandy Bridge and the screen size will reach a max of 10 inches. What’s really appealing is that the company’s tablets are supposed to evolve to quad-core architecture, distinguishing them from their competition.
This means that multitasking will be a breeze, but battery life will suffer. Acer’s not the best tablet-selling company right now, specially with their 12 inch product priced a bit under $1000 and being pulled from the shelves in July.
