Shufflegazine reports Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci showed off a 7-inch Android tablet at a press event.
Indeed, Lanci showed off a 7-inch tablet running Android. We weren’t given much more information than that other than he said it had color screen (which we could also see obviously) and would arrive in Q4. Price was not yet determined and in talking about how they would go to market with it, he said they had not decided between traditional channels or operators. He said that operators were an “obvious” option, hinting at the tablet having a 3G connection, something he didn’t confirm.
I’ve been wondering why companies such as Acer have not yet introduced something rivaling Apple’s iPad and I’m still confused as they said this would arrive in Q4. Even the monochrome e-book reader comes as late as Q3.
