Acer launching slider tablet this year?

Acer is a well known technology companies in the world and their desktops and laptops are famous. A few months ago, they launched few Honeycomb tablets, Acer ICONIA A100 and ICONIA A500. Now it looks like Acer is impressed by their tablets sales and planning to launch another one. DigiTimes is reporting that Acer is working on a 10-Inch tablet PC and it will feature a sliding keyboard, probably similar to ASUS EeePad Slider. As ASUS tablet comes with a full-sliding QWERTY keyboard, I am sure Acer tablet will offer the same one.

I hope Acer sliding tablet comes with an interesting design and Acer is planning to launch it later this year between October and December. It will be running on an ARM-based processor and will be manufacture by Compal. At the moment, we don’t know on which operating system it will be running on, but the possibility is that it will feature Android OS. As Windows 8 (which is Microsoft OS for tablets and others) is not out yet, so it’s possible that it will feature either Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich, but as Android 4.0 is also coming later this year, so probably it might be one of the first tablets to run on Android 4.0.

Anyway, let’s wait for some official words from Acer; I am sure they will be revealing it anytime soon. So who’s looking forward to it?
