It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to anybody that PC Maker Acer is planning on launching a tablet or two this year. But the company hasn’t shared many details so far. Now Digitimes reports that there will be two Acer tablets coming in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Both models will reportedly feature ARM-based processor and run Google’s Android operating system. According to DigiTimes, one will have a 7 inch display while the other will sport a 10 inch screen.

Both will feature multimedia capabilities and support Adobe Flash Player 10.1 — assuming they ship with Android 2.2 Froyo or a newer version of Android.

It’s possible that we’ve already seen the 7 inch tablet. Acer showed of a 7 inch eBook reader with a Qualcomm processor at Computex last month. While the device was described as an eBook reader, it was running Google Android and sure looked an awful lot like an all-purpose tablet.

If you were hoping for a Windows tablet from Acer, you might have to look at a larger model such as the 11.6 inch Acer Aspire 1825PTZ convertible notebook-style tablet.
