2012 sure is going to be the year of Android tablets, and powerful four-legged ─ read quad-core beasts at that. We just heard that Acer, Lenovo and Samsung are planning to release their own quad-core, Nvidia Tegra 3 powered tablets, powered with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich towards early 2012. The rush for quad-core was kick-started by ASUS’s upcoming Transformer Prime which will see a release sometime near Xmas 2011. According to sources, competition will be just as tricky as the last time around with the tablets mainly emphasizing an improvement in performance and design — not much else.
The new quad-core tablets from Acer and Lenovo are expected to be priced between US$459-599.
