Acer and its iPad Crushing Plans

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Acer is planning on releasing many new tablets over the next year. Acer will be able to make a tablet in a variety of operating systems like Windows, Chrome, and Android. These Tablets will also have much more expandability, like usb,SD card slots, and HDMI out, the list goes on. We all know that a quick PC tablet will take the market by storm, we all love Windows 7, and if we can get it in the size of a iPad with more options, then I am sold!

    [I]we all love Windows 7[/I] Wow. How did that get in there? I don't recall ever disliking an OS so much. It actually convinced me that it was time to leave Windows, and I even bought an eComStation license to begin a secondary complement to the Ubuntu and OpenSUSE trials I've been running at home. I wouldn't have an iPad if I hadn't received one as a prize from this site a couple months ago. I still haven't needed to recharge its battery -- it's down to 46%, I think... which shows how little use I have for it. If you're not already a reasonably active "Apple" user, the iPad isn't particularly useful. I have a small IBM laptop that's far more useful and not significantly bigger. (I bought it maybe six years ago from TigerDirect for less than what an iPad costs today.) Now, I am very pleased with the physical iPad technology; so don't get me wrong. Nice form factor, very nice touch-screen, decent performance, etc. But it is practically [I]chained[/I] to "Apple" -- i.e., iTunes and the iTunes store. And even syncing via iTunes installed on Windows! If Acer can come close at all to the physical iPad feeling and if something like Android is running on it, I'd gladly pay for one. I might never need to recharge my iPad battery after that. Tom
