Default Acer to Replace Netbooks with Sandy Bridge Tabs

One of the bigger things to come out of CES (apart from more 3DTVs than you can shake a stick at and about a gazillion tablets) was Intel’s Sandy Bridge platform, and apparently Acer has every intention of embracing it. Acer Taiwan sales manager Lu Bing-hsian told ComputerWorld that the company will be launching two tablets later in the year and that both will boast Sandy Bridge under the hood.

Lu didn’t give us a whole lot to go on, but he did say that aside from Sandy Bridge, they’d run on Android, come in 7- and 10-inch flavors and are being launched with the intention of phasing out netbooks because, “That’s the direction of the market.” He said that though Acer would continue to manufacture netbooks, they would be simple models and they’d be churning out fewer compared to recent years.
