HTC, Acer to announce Tegra 3 tablets
It was only a matter of time before additional manufacturers outside of Asus announce plans to launch tablets based on the new quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. Both HTC and Acer are reportedly deep in development of their own respective Tegra 3 tablets.
The DigiTimes report cites the Chinese Commercial Times that HTC is expected to unveil its first quad-core tablet based on Nvidia’s new processor at the 2012 Mobile World Conference. This particular tablet may even make it to market before the Windows 8 OS becomes available, which would imply a launch in the first half of next year.
Meanwhile, Japanese site ameblo.jp claims to have leaked the User Agent Profile from the next generation Acer tablet, called the Iconia Tab A510 or A511. The likely 10.1-inch display will be at a resolution of 1280x800 pixels and is expected to run on the Tegra 3 processor as well. The source believes there will be a wifi-only model (A510) and a 3G/4G model (A511).
The release date for the Acer tablet and the launch prices for it and the HTC are still mysteries. But, we can be certain that more Tegra 3 devices are sure to come following the launch of the Transformer Prime next month.
