Though Acer was reluctant to launch a slate tablet, it seems the firm has changed its belief and decided to get into the growing slate business. Reportedly, the company chairman recently demonstrated the Acer tablet at the Source Home summit in Beijing.
At the moment details are sparse but it is known that the device features a 7-inch touchscreen display.
What’s interesting about this tablet is that it has a physical slide-out keyboard too! Now that’s what separates Acer from other manufacturers.
But I believe Acer should come out with a 10-inch version of this tablet. I am sure because of its slide-out physical keyboard it would solve all input problems associated with a typical slate tablet.
The said device is based on Android operating system and will hit the markets by end of 2010.
