Acer set to launch tablet computer line next month

There is a huge amount of buzz and a huge demand for tablet computers right now thanks to the iPad. There are few offerings on the market though that users can choose from and computer makers are rushing to fix that lack of choice.

Starting on November 23 Acer will launch a line of tablet computers that will range in price from $299 to $699. The revelation came by way of Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci in a chat with Dow Jones Newswire. That is all the detail that was offered by Lanci on the new line of tablets.

The last rumor of an Acer tablet pegged the OS as Android, but we can't rule out Windows 7 on larger and more expensive versions either. Screen sizes are unknown but a good guess would be the current 7-inch to 10-inch range.
