When earlier reports claimed that Acer would be focusing on tablets and scaling down production of netbooks, some folks began to worry if the company would be halting production of its popular Aspire One line of netbooks entirely. The good news is that Acer has released a statement, clarifying the issue. According to Acer, its new array of Android-powered tablets “will find their space next to netbooks and notebooks,” and tablets that will be powered by Intel’s Sandy Bridge silicon won’t be arriving anytime soon. Such a move would make sense, as Acer would probably wait for the upcoming ultra-low voltage (ULV) Sandy Bridge chips before it integrates such chips into tablet devices. If you’ve been worried about the future of Acer’s netbooks, you can breathe a sigh of relief now.
