Acer Windows 8 Tablets for Computex Taipei Showcase

Between June 5 and 9, at the Computex Taipei 2012, Acer will exhibit their latest Tablet PCs that the world has been waiting for quite a while.

Acer, as you already have heard, launched its Iconia A510 10.1 inch tablet PC this month, while the Iconia A700, which is also a 10.1 inch tablet, will arrive this July.

The company has, during the first four months of the 2012, shipped around 400,000-450,000 units and expects to ship over 2 million units by the end of the year.

Although, Acer promises quality and performance, there will be an issue with the price for the customers as it is a Windows-based tablet and Windows based devices will cost a bit more than Android because of the Windows 8 licensing fees.

So we can expect the price to be more than that of iOS devices or maybe just on the same level but still higher than most Android devices.

Judging from the sales of the units, we would say that the company still has a chance even with high prices as people seem to put in a certain amount of trust in Windows products. But there still are other aspects other than the price tag of the products.

Since, Windows 8 devices are just recent, there aren’t a lot of apps and games for the OS. And that could be a huge let down for anyone who is an app addict.

But if Asus plays the cards right, they still have a chance of satisfying themselves by achieving the expected sales.
