According to a report over at Digitimes.com, Acer is working on a tablet that will be based on Intel's upcoming Oak Trail platfrom. The device will most likely end up with a 10-inch screen and will be backed by Android 3.0 OS.

Digitimes states that the device is manufactured by Compal Electronics and that it sources were pretty clear in stating that Intel is pushing hard for this market.
