We've seen a flood of Android Tablets coming out lately (or announced) and Acer didn't want to be left in the cold. So they've announced a number of new Android Tablets today. While the market is already quite saturated, it's been saturated by cheap Chinese/Taiwanese tablets that leave a lot to be desired in fit and finish and polish. Finally however though, the big boys are getting in on the action and we are seeing tablets that really are worthy of your hard earned dollars.
We hope that Acer hears our cries for high quality tablets without contracts and at good pricing... Acer in the past has been known for just that so we have our fingers crossed. Samsung will hopefully be faced with enough competition and be forced to lower prices.
In the mean time, here's what we know about the Tablets courtesy of Engadget's Live Blog.
The largest tablet is going to be 10.1 inch and will run Android but they did not specify which exact version. I'm sure it will depend on when it actually hits the market. This tablet features a 1Ghz processor, 5 megapixel camera, HDMI and a resolution of 1280x800.
The next tablet is a 7 inch with the same resolution of 1280x800 and a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Dual-Core processor. This seems to be a great size/performance ratio and hopefully the smaller screen will make the price a bit more palatable.
The last device is a 4.8" screen, 1.3 Megapixel front-facing camera, 8 Megapixel rear-facing camera, HD video recording capabilities and some other miscellaneous features.
