Shocker of shockers, folks — Acer’s getting into the tablet game, too.
With the holidays too close for comfort, the outfit’s giving everyone pause that was considering that janky Android tablet on sale for Black Friday. All jesting aside, the flagship 10.1-incher looks quite interesting, boasting a dual-core 1GHz processor, an HDMI output and a native 1280×800 (!) screen resolution. You’ll also get a 5 megapixel rear camera, an “HD” front-facing camera for video calling and full multitouch support. Hard to say how many clams it’ll cost ya, but at least there’s an April 2011 ship date to mark down. Moving on, the 7-inch tablet (also unnamed as of now) packs the same screen resolution, a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm CPU and the same Flash 10.1 support — so far as we can tell, the “Android Tablet OS” Acer speaks of is Froyo, or Android 2.2. That one’s also coming in April of next year, and you can bet we’ll be scrounging up more details as soon as we can.
Update: PR’s live after the break, and here’s what’s new. The 10.1-incher boasts a 13.3mm thick shell, 1080p output over HDMI, a ten-point multitouch system and an inbuilt Gyroscope for gaming purposes. The 7-inch sibling seems mostly identical save for the screen size, packing a dual core CPU, DNLA technology, WiFi and integrated 3G.
