This probably shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone, but it looks like the major players in the tablet race are looking to 2012 to unveil their first quad-core tablets. While it’s great to the hear the news, it’s not surprising in the slightest. We already know that ASUS has a quad-core tablet launching this year, and we’ve heard that HTC is already in the process of creating their first quad-core tablet for the first part of 2012.
Still, DigiTimes is reporting that not only is Acer, Samsung and Lenovo gearing up to make the move to quad-core for their tablets in the future, they will all be powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3, too. Now, hearing Lenovo’s name dropped again is just more of a confirmation that the manufacturer is indeed planning on going the quad-core route — which lines up perfectly with earlier rumors.
Those are about all the details we have at this point, but it would seem to us that with the ASUS Transformer Prime set to light world up, that the other manufacturers won’t wait long to unveil their own wares.
