We already know that Acer has at least one tablet that is on the way to the market which will run on Google’s Android operating system, and here we have a brief appearance of this yet unannounced tablet in a YouTube video that has apparently leaked. The video points toward a 10-inch model, where many people also believe that it will be powered by NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 platform. Of course, more information was inferred from this latest leak, where it shows that Acer is currently working on a range of custom Android applications, including an e-reader app that doubles up as a photo utility, seemingly relying on a gyroscope sensor to help you turn pages. While a custom user interface and applications are most probably in beta development, Acer is rumored to be holding out for Android 3.0 Honeycomb that will be optimized for tablets before releasing their tablet(s) to join the fray. Apart from that, we also have word that the company is currently working on a 4.8-inch smartphone with a 1024 x 480 resolution display coupled with a 7-inch model that has a much higher resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels alongside a dual-core processor. April would be a likely date for when the Acer tablet will be released.
