    Acer also jumped in the race of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet at MWC.Its good for tablet users that there is now a very healthy competition going on that leads to new innovative tablets to be launched.

  2. Xoom Forums says

    Though Acer didn’t go into details about the OS, the company did reveal that it will be running “the latest highly intuitive Android OS,” which likely means they’re waiting on Honeycomb, or at least Gingerbread, to hit the mainstream before announcing any more details.
