Acer shows its 10.1-inch Windows 7 tablet

AMD inside

In addition to its Android tablets, Acer showed yet another quite interesting tablet at its event in New York City. Unlike the Google-based brethern, this one runs on Windows 7 OS and is powered by AMD's chip, something that certainly raised a lot of attention.

The new 10.1-inch tablet is packed in a 15mm thick case and weighs just under 2.2 pounds (just under 1kg). The rest of the specs are still a mystery as Acer kept this one under wrap, but it is quite easy to guess that we are looking an AMD Ontario-based platform, as 9W TDP is something that tablets would certainly benefit from. Also it is worth to mention that Ontario has DirectX 11 capable graphics and is more than capable for 1080p reproduction.

The rest of the known features includes two 1.3MP cameras (rear and front), integrated WiFi and 3G, and most importantly, a February 2011 ship date, which means that this one will come before the Acer's Tegra-based 10.1-incher.
