Acer Announces AMD-Powered Windows 7 Tablet

Following LG’s sales of the E-Note, Acer has gone ahead to announce its own 10.1-inch Windows 7 tablet that will be powered by AMD and will be shipping in February complete with WiFi and 3G for ubiquitous connectivity. The Windows 7 tablet from Acer will be shipping in February for an undisclosed price at this time, and the device will weigh just under 2.2 pounds at a thinness of 15 mm. The resolution of the display was also not disclosed, but Acer will be bundling this touchscreen with a docking station, something that Dell is doing with its Inspiron Duo convertible Windows 7 tablet. There will also be dual 1.3-megapixel cameras for the front and back.

Not much information is available via the company’s press release, but in case you’re interested:

Acer’s range of tablets also includes a 10.1-inch device offering an extremely innovative solution that combines touch screen user-friendliness with the comfortable experience of a physical keyboard. In fact, the tablet comes with a docking device that includes a full-size keyboard and more connectivity options to enhance the user experience.

Thanks to this simple solution, this tablet will provide optimal ergonomics and ease of use both on the go and at your desk. Thin and light (only 15 mm and less than 1kg), and with a 10.1″, high resolution display, it’s easy to carry around and really unobtrusive. This tablet ensures outstanding entertainment and a superior touch experience.

The tablet will run on the next-generation AMD platform and will be equipped with two 1.3MP cameras, one rear and one front-facing, allowing you to take pictures, record video, chat and videoconference. Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity lets you keep in touch with your world at all times.
