Acer wants a tablet for everyone

Written by Nick Farell



Small, big, not very bright

Acer has decided to roll out tablets to suit every demographic. The outfit is releasing new 4.8", 7", and 10.1" tablets which will run  Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) when they are released in 2011.

Acer admits that it is going for a broad approach in regards to tablets in that no one is really sure what people will want them for or what size is best. All of them will have dual-core Tegra CPUs and come with Acer's own UI. However none of the names have a name yet nor a price.

The smallest will have a 4.8" screen with a resolution of 1024x480 which Acer described as "100 percent smartphone, 100 percent tablet." Sounds  more like smartphone which is only slightly bigger than the HTC Evo with its 4.3" screen.

There is a 7" and the 10 inch versions will have a resolution of 1280x800. The 10.1" and 4.8" versions have front- and rear-facing cameras, though it was unclear from Acer's presentation whether the 7" version does or not.
