Acer prepping three Gingerbread tablets for early next year
Screen sizes will cover the usual suspects at 5”, 7” and 10”, with the five incher poised to be the missing link between a smartphone, and larger tablets. We’ve heard that before, and even seen it well implemented in the Dell Streak, whose voice functionality landed it on AT&T’s portfolio. Acer is probing both Compal and Quanta for building the slates, and still pondering over NVIDIA’s Tegra 2, or the Snapdragon chipset, for powering them.
It is not that Acer is planning Android tablets that is newsworthy here – such plans are a dime a dozen these days. The interesting thing is that yet again we are hearing sources from one of the major electronics manufacturers to confirm that Gingerbread will be available soon, and – surprise, surprise – will be tailored to the tablet experience.

Android tablet? No thanks, I'll stick with Apple from now on. If the Android tablet runs anything like the Droid it'll be a waste of money.

Well it could be better because Gingerbread might make a better breakthrough for tablets. But as for the tablets on 2.2, I think that's a waste.

the droid is not the best android phone out there, so bad comparison. the tech in the tablets are well beyond what the droid offers. I wouldnt call 2.2 a waist. The only "major" tablet thats been announced that runs 2.2 is the Galaxy Tab, which has been promised an upgrade to 3.0. Nothing wrong with striking while the iron is hot, and with the GalaxyS line, the iron is definatly hot.
