    Acer’s first Android 3.0 based tablet running on Intel’s Oak Trail processors is expected to hit retail by July at the latest, going by the latest Taipei rumors, offering the promise of greater performance over existing ARM-based slates like the Iconia Tab A500 but maintaining comparable pricing. According to DigiTimes‘ sources, Compal is already mass-producing the anonymous tablet; meanwhile, Acer is reportedly considering adding another tablet platform to its portfolio.

    At only a couple of months from now to its release, the difference in power compared to the current iconia will be neglegable. First off, most android app developers havent fully started supporting the tablets yet. Furthermore, the on,y real reason for the speed would be gaming... sure, video and internet too, but the iconia handles those like a champ (and will even get better when it gets honeycomb 3.1 early this june).

    If you really want a tablet, you're not going to feel slighted by buying the iconia (or any other current android honeycomb tablet). Besides, if you wait for oak trail, tegra quad core will be coming out. After that, Intel will release pine trail, etc, etc.

    Btw... I know Nvidia is already releasing a new tegra chipset soon, don't actually know if its quad core. As for pine trail... just making it up. :)
