Acer Expecting to Release Quad-Core 10-Inch Android Tablet by Mid-Year

You know that line in The Social Network where Justin Timberlake’s character says, “…a million dollars is not cool. You know what is cool? A billion dollars“?  That the first thing I thought of when I learned that Acer plans to release Android-based tablets in 2011 with Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors. Yup, that’s quad-core prowess they are talking about.  According to Computer World, Acer expects to offer a couple of new tablets in the first half of 2011 with our favorite mobile OS running the show.  One will be a 7-inch model whereas another should be a 10-inch version.  As the demand shifts from netbooks to tablets, Acer will change their own focus, eventually phasing out netbooks.

A dual-core tablet is not cool.  You know what is cool? A quad-core tablet.

Anyone willing to give Acer a crack at their wallet?  Do they have what it takes or will they fall somewhere in line with Dell’s Android efforts.

Co-Pilot Live Discounts Android App For the Holiday

Despite the iPhone nature of the above video, Co-Pilot Live is a GPS alternative for you Android device that you may need to take a look at. As Android users, we already have a great GPS solution with Google Maps built into our handsets, but Maps is dependent on always having a network signal to drive the map info. Simply put, the map info is not installed on your handset, but on Google’s servers so you can access to info quickly as you move. Traditional GPS units store all their map info internally, which allows you to always have your map info wherever you go. Co-Pilot Live makes your Android handset behave more like a traditional GPS, by installing almost 1.5 GB of map info to your handset.

        The quad-cores use alot less battery than single or dual-core processors. But the ram might be a problem.
