November 26, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

To update you about Acer’s plans for its initial batch of tablet PCs, let us tell you that at least some of these machines will come with an AMD CPU. Dubbed as C-50, the AMD Ontario APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) will be the main component that runs the show with some of Acer’s 10.1 inch tablet devices.

These Windows 7 tablets are expected to feature two 1.3 megapixel webcams for crystal clear video chats too. C-50 Ontario processor is dual core and draws 9W power for functioning. Integrated with a Radeon HD 6250 graphics chip, it is presently priced at $55 – 60 in the US market.

Bundled with a docking station sporting a keyboard and charger, they are reportedly more usable than many other tablets in the market. Aiming at an early launch in 2011, probably in February, this devices are rumored to have 3G power and Wi-Fi connectivity.

If the emerging reports are to be believed, Acer will be presenting some tablet devices powered with other processors to meet different loyalist camps in the market.

A seven inch tablet with the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is reportedly in the list of the future devices along with a 10.1 inch tablet model powered with NVDIA Tegra-2 processor.

Set to launch in April 2011, these devices will be 3G enabled with Wi-Fi capacity.
