Acer reportedly plans to launch a quad-core Android 4.0 tablet early next year that will compete against Eee Pad Transformer Prime from Asus and an upcoming quad-core device from Samsung, sources tell Digitimes.
Android Tablets powered by dual core processors from Acer (Iconia Tab A500), Asus (Eee Pad Transformer) and Samsung (Galaxy Tab) did not capture the market to the extent they were expected to, but all three vendors have decided to remain in the field.
Lenovo too is expected to launch a quad core processor tablet early next year crowding the market. Quad core tablet offerings from Acer and Lenovo are expected to be priced between US $459-599, which rules out potential Amazon Kindle Fire customers being lured.
So will you be getting a Quad-Core beast next year?
