Acer’s Ultrabook And 7-inch Tablet Hit Australia Next Month

Remember all the way back to Monday when Acer’s founding father said that tablets and MacBook Air thin, sub-$US1000 Ultrabooks are a fad? Someone missed the memo, because Gizmodo just received word that Acer’s Ultrabook will arrive first, followed a few weeks later by the delayed 7-inch Iconia Tab A100, which will be around $500.

The Ultrabook in question could be the rumoured MacBook Air-esque Aspire 3951 (pictured, after leaked pics of the 13.3-incher emerged this week).

As an Ultrabook, Acer’s new machine will feature Sandy Bridge and a solid state hard disk, but we don’t really know too much more just yet.

Meanwhile, the Iconia Tab A100’s specs include a dual core Tegra 2 processor and 8GB storage running Android Honeycomb. It’ll have HDMI/USB/MicroUSB connectivity, and Wi-Fi or 3G options. It’s also very likely that you’ll be able to pick up the latter through a carrier like Telstra or Optus, but we’ll have to wait and see.
