New Challenger For Apple iPad – Acer Tablet Computers
The Apple iPad has been dominating what comes to the ever increasing tablet computer market. However, rivals are developing their own products intensively, and latest manufacturer pushing out a range of tablet computers is Acer. They are bringing new, yet unnamed, 7-inch, 10.1-inch tablets and one other very interesting device to sale in April 2011.
All three devices are run by Google's Android OS. Exact version of OS is not yet confirmed. Keep your fingers crossed that at least one of the three will be loaded with "Gingerbread" (Android 2.3) or even "Honeycomb" (Android 3.0?), which will be Google's latest version of Android. Honeycomb platform is specially designed to get most out of the tablets and high-end smartphones. Just like for devices like this upcoming new bigger tablets and 4.8-inch Acer.
It is kind of hybrid between tablet/smartphone, very similar to the Dell Streak, However, Acer's device has more life in it (power). This 4.8-inch comes with 1024X480! screen resolution and is based on Google's mobile OS. While writing this article, there is no finalized name for this new product yet. Public got only a short glance at it, in Acer's Global press event in New York City on 23rd of November. Tech specs include, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a two megapixel camera (front), eight megapixel camera (rear) (with LED flash), 720p video recording!, HSDPA support, a and an HDMI output, a LED edge lighting and six-axis Gyroscope + accelerometer package. Price of the device remains unknown, but enthusiast can expect to get this beauty to their hands on April 2011.
I myself have been using Apple iPad's for quite some time now. I've got nothing but good things to say about Multi-Touch screen devices. I actually think that this ever developing Tablet industry is a beginning of a completely new era of consumer information technology.
