Is A Real iPad KILLER Around the Corner?
Competitors have struggled as Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad continues to corner the biggest share of the tablet market, but Acer is launching a new attempt with its Tab A700 that targets the new iPad’s retina display at a lower price. Acer’s new 10.1-inch tablet has a high-definition resolution of 1920 by 1200 at 224 pixels per inch, a Tegra 3 processor, and runs on Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android 4.0. Apple’s third-generation iPad has a 2048 by 1536 resolution at 264 pixels per inch display.
