Acer introduces three new tablets

Acer Iconia tablets will come in Android and Windows 7 models

After announcing the Acer Aspire One D257 earlier, Acer is at it again with the announcement of three new tablets. The newly introduced Iconia Tab devices are the A100, A500 and W500; featuring Android OS (A100, A500) and Windows 7 (W500).

The pair of Android devices (denoted by an A before the model number) both feature an NVIDIA Tegra 2 Processor, a 5MP rear-camera, a 2MP front-camera, HDMI, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Android Honeycomb 3.0. The difference between the two is that the A100 will have a 7” (1024x600 pixel) display, 512MB RAM and 8GB of storage compared to the A500’s 10.1” (1280x800 pixel) display, 1GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of storage.

As far as Acer’s other device, the Iconia Tab W500 will be powered by an AMD C-50 Processor, AMD Radeon HD 6250 Graphics, up to 2GB DDR3, a 32GB SSD, and will be running Windows 7. The tablet will also have HDMI, Wi-Fi, a 1.3MP webcam, and features the same 10.1” display found in the A500. Also available for the W500 is a docking station/keyboard that allows use of the tablet as a laptop.

As of now both Android tablets should be released in April, although there is no word of pricing. On the other hand, the W500 may have already hit the scene, as listings have been spotted for the W500 at certain European retailers for 499 Euros
