Acer Iconia dual touch screen tablet announced

Today we have two more tablet PCs to play around with and both will be launched by the Taiwan based manufacturer Acer, will be in two size categories, running two different operating systems. These are a 10 inch device running Windows 7 with an Intel core and a smaller 7 inch tablet running Android 2.2.

Launched in New York which comes as no surprise as the US is perhaps the biggest tablet market right now with the iPad ruling the roost. The timing couldn’t have been better with the holidays fast approaching and electronic gadgets such as tablets are already proving popular and likely to increase, possibly at the expense of the more conventional laptop. If the other tablet launches is anything to go by, Acer should have another success on their hands. For example the Galaxy tablet has already gone on to reach 600,000 homes around the world and might reach the million mark before the end of the year.
