Acer Aspire Switch 10 should get its Android version

Acer Aspire Switch 10

You may’ve seen the Acer Aspire Switch 10. It’s a rather decent Windows 8.1 2-in-1 device that can “act” both as a tablet and laptop. Inside, it packs Intel’s Bay Trail Atom Z3740 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The screen has a diagonal of 10 inches, and the entire package goes for $399. And… we wonder why Asus doesn’t launch a similar, or even the same, Android model.

Acer’s current Android tablet line-up is modest, to say the least. Backed by a solid marketing campaign, the Android-powered Aspire Switch 10 could propel the Taiwanese company to the new heights, allowing it to grab a piece of the market from Samsung, Asus, Amazon and other players.

I’m sure I’m not the only one looking for a tablet that can double as a laptop. In fact, I would say that detachable keyboard or keyboard case is one of those must-have accessories for every tablet owner out there.

At the moment, Asus is the only company offering such product [tablet with a detachable keyboard] in the West. Lenovo and Huawei both have similar devices, but their gear is seldom sold at major retailers in the Europe and North America. That leaves room for Acer; the way I see things, they only need to cram a different OS (Android) on the Aspire Switch 10 and that’s it. The price also seems right. So Acer – what are you waiting for?

Some of us like tablets with detachable keyboards, and we want you to give us the extra option to choose from. 😉

    Android? It doesn’t have any usable software, that’s the whole point of bring a WIndows tablet !
