Acer plans to launch its tablet line starting on November 23rd

Acer plans to launch its tablet line starting on November 23rd
Back last month, we reported that Acer decided to jump into the tablet market by coming out with possibly three Android tablets running Gingerbread. Now it seems that the number two PC maker in the world is steadfastly rolling the ball in time to get their line of tablets ready for the all important holiday season.

Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci confirmed in an interview with Dow Jones Newswires that the company is indeed planning to launch a line of tablets. They're also anticipating that tablets would of course eat into PC sales in the near future, and without waiting, they're going to play it safe by launching their tablets in the price range of $299 to $699.

Even though Lanci did not reveal any specific details surrounding their tablets, like whether or not they'll be running Windows 7 or Android, but he did mention that their first offering would be launched on November 23rd. The mentality it seems with Acer is naturally to become the “leader in mobile solutions for PC products from 3-inch to 20-inch.”

As we near the heart of November, we're already starting to see a huge focus in the tablet market – as evident with all the recent activity we've seen of late. In order to stay relevant in this competitive market, Acer isn't taking a chance on waiting and looks to be ready for a busy holiday season.
