The executive also shared pricing information. Acer's offerings will range from $299 to $699, effectively undercutting the starting price of Apple's iPad by $200. The $299 price point is also home to many netbooks, which are already competing for attention with Apple's tablets.
Lanci didn't mention what operating system the devices would run at launch, but Windows 7 or Android 2.2 are the most likely candidates -- even if Google says the latter isn't ready for tablets. Other specs are also up in the air, so we could see a healthy mix of sizes and horsepower.
