Acer Planning Low-cost 8-inch, 10-inch Quad-Core Tablets

Taiwanese multinational hardware and electronics corporation Acer is believed to be planning two quad-core tablets.

According to China Times, MediaTek's MT6589 quad-core processor will power both devices. The 8-inch tablet is expected to retail at around $200, while the 10-incher is expected to be priced at $250.

Acer's chief for the Greater China region, Linxian Lang, believes there's untapped potential in China, with more than 200 million devices expected to be sold this year. Excluding Apple's iPad and Samsung's Galaxy tablet range, approximately 120 million low and mid-range slates should be sold. Expect both slates to be announced during MWC late next month.

The company recently announced the Android-powered Liquid E1 smartphone, which runs on a dual-core 1GHz processor.
