Acer prepping three Gingerbread tablets for early next year
One Acer executive recently shared that the company won’t mind turning to Android for its tablet plans, but for now a Windows 7 one is in the works, running Microsoft’s touch edition of the OS. Obviously the world’s number three computer manufacturer has deepened the feelings for Google’s finest, as sources now say it plans not one, but three Android 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.
