Default Acer Slates Coming in Windows and Android Flavours

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"It looks like the tablet gold rush has another big prospector coming into town. At its global press event today in New York, Acer announced that it is launching three new consumer slates in 2011. Two of the slates, a 7-inch and a 10-inch will have the next version Android and arrive in April 2011, but are dependent on the release of Google&rsquo;s next major update to its OS. Another 10-incher will have Windows 7 and arrive in February 2011."</em></p><p><img src="" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>With all these companies releasing tablets, you would think that they are a hot commodity.&nbsp; Truthfully, I am surprised that a lot of these announcements are coming out now and for release dates marked for next year.&nbsp; The holiday season is right upon us, and missing out on this critical time means that come February, a lot of people will already be brandishing their 10" silvery black toys and not be interested in whatever anyone else is offering, no matter how good, powerful or slick it might be.&nbsp; The Android versions will face even longer delays, most likely owing to the extra resolution these tablets offer.</p>
