Acer ready to jump into the tablet ring

Earlier today, the computer technology company Acer announced that it will be making its way into the tablet arena on November 23rd. While not much is currently known about the upcoming tablet, Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci showed off the upcoming device which sported a physical keyboard not unlink the Kindle. The tablet will have a 7″ display and will run on the Android OS. Other than that, the only other detail Lanci left us with is that the tablets will range anywhere between $299 and $699.

According to Lanci, Acer is looking to become the “leader in mobile solutions for PC products from 3-inch to 20-inch.” A very ambitious goal indeed, but when every computer technology company starts kicking out tablets left and right, what will be that defining characteristic that will sway us from picking your tablet over the competitor’s? I know this one might be hard to swallow, but how about more developers consider loosing the data plans? I thought tablets were to replace out laptops, not our cell phones.
