Acer Android tablets detailed

Two new models primed for New Year release.

That fancy dual-screen Acer Iconia a tad too futuristic for you? Then how about the PC cobbler’s new Android tablets, which were given an official airing at the same time?

Acer has unveiled 7-inch and 10.1-inch slates which are both set to cram in Google’s mobile OS. The 10.1-inch number is specced to the hilt, with a capacitive touchscreen, 1080p video, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity and a sleek 13.3mm aluminium frame.

Acer claims that thanks to multitouch and a gyroscope it’ll be able to, “…play premium HD arcade games and complex online 3D games,” which will be, “on par with the best game consoles.” Bold claims indeed.

The 7-inch effort packs in a super high-res, 1280x800 panel, along with HDMI, a front-facing “HD camera”, Flash support, Wi-Fi, 3G, Dolby Mobile and DLNA. Both the 10.1-inch and 7-inch Acer tablets are due out in April 2011, which means they should land replete with Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

Elsewhere, Acer also touted another 10.1-inch tablet, this time with Windows 7 inside. It comes with a keyboard dock, measures just 15mm thin and tips the scales at less than 1kg. There’s an AMD processor inside, with two 1.3MP cameras for video nattering. Wi-Fi and 3G are both inside, with this Microsoft-backed tab landing next February.
