We'd already heard that Acer had some 7- and 10-inch Android tablets
in the works, but it looks like it's not stopping there. DigiTimes
is now reporting that the company is also prepping a 5-inch tablet which, like the others, will be based on Android 3.0
and will roll out sometime in the first quarter of 2011. Of particular note here is that the 5-inch model will reportedly boast both "handset and tablet PC functionality," which would pit it up against the likes of the Dell Streak
. Details otherwise still seem to be pretty up in the air for all three, though -- in fact, DigiTimes
says that Acer is still deciding between Qualcomm's Snapdragon and NVIDIA's Tegra 2, and that it will even release an Intel-based Windows 7 model before the Android tablets in order to "test the water in the market."
