Acer has become a household name in India when it comes to netbooks or laptops. Lower priced than other brands, Acer has marked a niche for themselves in India. So it is not really surprising that they have launched a range of tablets in India. The most impressive of them seems to be the Acer ICONIA Tab A500.
This is a very smart move by Acer, to come up with tablets earlier than other brands in India. This is obviously on the back of iPad 2 being made available in India.

With 3G services just beginning to be doled out by telecom companies, we can probably expect a lot more tablets being launched in India. This might be a master-stroke by Acer to get into the game so early.
