Acer To Launch Tablets In Q4 2010

Taiwanese manufacturer Acer will add a 7-inch and a 10-inch tablet PC to its range of products in the fourth quarter of 2010, possibly during the build up to the lucrative Christmas shopping period.

According to Digitimes, the devices will be based on Android and ARM, which will means that they will share the same architecture as Acer's existing smartphones like the Liquid.

Interestingly, Digitimes mentions Notebook players as its sources and also says that Acer is talking to mobile phone operators to sell the two models which means that they will be 3G compatible.

It looks therefore likely that the computer behemoth will go down the same route as the Dell with Streak except that both Acer tablets won't make calls.

The sources also mention that the tablet PCs will integrate multimedia entertainment capabilities and support Adobe Flash. Finally, both the new tablet computers and the existing Acer's ebook range will co-exist peacefully for a foreseeable future.
