Acer to go downmarket soon with a $200 8" and $250 10" quad-core tablets
Acer is planning to release two Android tablets in the near future, according to China Times, with MediaTek's newly minted MT6589 quad-core processor. The 8-incher is expected to cost around $200, while the 10" slate will likely hover around the $250 mark, which are both pretty good prices for the respective screen size.
We wouldn't expect ultra high resolution screens on the next affordable slates from Acer, but judging by the cheap Iconia B1 it outed at CES a few weeks ago, they won't look and feel bad either.
Acer's chief for the Greater China region said he believes there is a huge addressable market for tablets, with more than 200 million expected to be sold this year. Taking out Apple's and Samsung's tablets forecast, there will still be around 120 million low and midrange slates market to be conquered, and Acer is positioning accordingly
