Acer Delays Android Tablet for Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Talks 3D Plans

In an interview with All Things Digital, Acer head Gianfranco Lanci says that he has postponed an Android tablet in favor of Honeycomb to favor a better tablet user experience. “We took the decision to wait for Honeycomb when it is available….Now you can have Gingerbread on a tablet, but we are not convinced it is the right solution,” Lanci says. In terms of the smartphone space, Acer is looking to release more smartphones running both Windows Phone 7 and the Android operating system to the market. He says that Windows Phone 7 is offering a similar value and experience compared to Android, which is a plus. The company is also looking at MeeGo for the second half of 2011 and a Chrome OS netbook when available. In terms of 3D technologies, Acer is looking to take the 3D experience to the phone and tablet as well.

I think we are going to do the same on phone, even on tablets. If you think about gaming, 3-D gaming has becoming quite popular. If you think about a 3-D tablet, you can play games. We are working on 3-D on a lot of things.
