Acer announced this week that they are getting into the tablet game. The company unveiled their plans to offer three different Android tablets, a 4.8" version, a 7" version, and a 10" version, all available in April 2011.
The two larger tablets feature dual core processors, which will make them very fast. All are promised to be running Android 2.2, Froyo...though by the time April rolls around, Froyo may be old news. The two larger tablets both feature front and back cameras, and have high resolution screens. No price information was given.
In addition to the two larger, obviously tablet-size devices, Acer also showed off a 4.8" device that they're calling a phone. But it's a curious device in that it's not any wider than existing devices...only taller. In comparison photos, it doesn't appear to be any wider than the G2, but the screen is 21:9 cinema aspect ratio, meaning it's at least a full inch taller than the G2. The unnamed phone features a 1GHz processor, very high-resolution screen, and both front and rear cameras. No release date or pricing was given.
