Acer unveils 5, 7, 10 inch tablets and dual-screen notebook
Acer has been the leading the pack nowadays when it comes to launching new and updated products time and again. And Acer is now making news with the unveiling of a slew of products that are all touch-sensitive.
To start with, Acer is preparing to launch 5, 7, and 10-inch tablet PCs. The 10.1-inch tablet will supposedly run on the Google Android OS and will be powered by a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU. There will be out-of-the-box support for Adobe Flash 10.1 and also on the feature-list is a pair of cameras-one 5MP rear-facing camera and another low-resolution front-facing camera, and HDMI output. Talking of yet another tablet, a 4.8 inch mini-tablet with a 1024 x 480 pixel display, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, HD video recording, 6-axis motion sensing, and an LED flash will also appear very soon, with the added ability to make phone calls (reminds us of the Dell Streak). The 7-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel tablet will in all probability be propelled by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. All of these tablets will make an appearance not any time before April.
Also on the cards is a dual-screen notebook, a concept which is not new anymore, where one screen acts as the display and the other as a touch-sensitive keyboard; it will be called the Iconia. And there’s more coming up, a 10.1-inch convertible tablet-style netbook, something like the Dell Inspiron Duo, is also slated for launch in February which will be powered by an AMD chip and will have dual cameras, HDMI output, and Windows 7. Reportedly, Acer has also prepared custom software for the Iconia notebook to create enhanced touch controls for the apps used for viewing videos and photos, and a web browser that has been optimized for touch controls too.
