Acer is looking to sell a total of 10 million tablets this year. That’s up from just 1 million it moved last year.
Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of these tablets (7 million) will run Android, while 3 million will come with Windows.
According to DigiTimes, Acer is betting heavily on the success of its low-cost Iconia B1 tablet, and is currently shipping anywhere between 200,000 and 300,000 units per month. The B1, as you probably know, is a 7-inch tablet with 1024×600 pixels resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, VGA camera, microSD memory card slot, and 8 or 16 GB of built-in storage.
The story goes on suggesting that the Taiwanese company will unveil two additional entry-level tablets, one with an 8- and the other one with 10-inch screen. The former should go into production at some point in April, and most likely start hitting store shelves few months later. We’ll let you know when we hear something new on this…
