With the quad-core ASUS Transformer Prime set to hit the U.S. in a few weeks, it looks like another Tegra 3 tablet will be joining the race in 2012, as Acer has confirmed its plans to offer a slate equipped with NVIDIA’s latest chipset.
While he was extremely vague on details, Acer’s president, Jim Wong, did validate that Acer will be bringing a quad-core tablet to the market in 2012, saying the company plans to “remain aggressive” on the tablet front.
Earlier reports suggested Acer would introduce a Tegra 3 tablet next year, though this is the first confirmation from the company. It is expected that Acer will unveil the tablet at CES in January under the moniker “the A510 slate”. Other rumors pegged the Android tablet with a 1280 x 800 screen resolution, as well as Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi.
Acer isn’t the only company said to be offering a Tegra 3 tablet, as news of quad-core slates from Lenovo and HTC surfaced weeks ago. While neither company has confirmed such reports, perhaps we will be seeing these tablets early next year as well.
Acer’s latest Iconia Tab, the A200, leaked last month, with a video touting some of the tablet’s capabilities, despite lacking an official announcement by Acer of the tablet’s existence.
