ACER declared their return on profit on the third quarter of the year, as they face Macbook Air rival.

JT Wang, ACER chairman, argued his belief at last Thursday’s presentation that the company would return to profit in 2011. This comes after posting their two consecutive losses in the first half of the year, because of the Apple’s iPad domination over netbooks and low-end notebooks.

JT Wang also said that he expects a profit in the summer and an improvement in the fall — the combination of which would put ACER back in the top of the market. The said Taiwan PC builder cut its ‘abnormalities’ in Europe from unsold notebooks, and would have a much efficient 10 to 20 days of channel inventory in the summer.

From Tegra to Atom. The ASUS Eee Pad Slider abandons NVIDIA for Intel according to an Intel.com post.

The last time Gadg checked, the ASUS Eee Pad was going to sport NVIDIA’s 1GHz Tegra dual core processor. But it seems the tides have changed, as a recent post over at Intel.com (it’s been removed now, thank you very much) reveals that the tablet is now equipped with Intel’s new Atom Oak Trail chip, the Atom Z670, instead.

Could it be just a huge mistake or has ASUS abandoned NVIDIA for its Eee Pad?

CCP Games' MMORPG EVE Online is knocking on Tegra 2-equipped tablets and smartphones doors.

How true is it that MMORPG EVE Online is set to make an apperance in tablets and phones? Well based on what CCP Games showed off in its EVE Fanfest last weekend, it’s pretty much true. The developer and publisher displayed an “exploratory project” which runs an abridged version of the game on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2-equppied tablets and smartphones.

Although the project is not a complete version of the title, the demo certainly convinced the audience as it shows a spacecraft rendered from EVE Online with a familiar user interface. CCP Games shared that the mobile version of the MMORPG is going to take place in the same universe as its PC counterpart.

Are we going to have our very first MMORPG on our mobile devices? Where are you Blizzard?

LG's all ready to jump into the tablet and smartphone wars anew, with the T-Mobile G-Slate and G2X smartphone rumored to arrive April 20th.

Unofficial T-Mobile Blog, TmoNews, reports that LG’s T-Mobile G-Slate tablet and the G2X smartphone – which is believed to be the Optimus 2X – will be making a debut on April 20th. The release date comes as a surprise considering that competitors such as Motorola and Samsung are way ahead in releasing their own latest tablet and smartphone. Is there still room for LG in the market? There have been no confirmation yet if the said date is true but expect T-Mobile to either confirm or deny the rumor at the CTIA 2011, next week.

The tablet and smartphone will feature dual-core Tegra 2 chips, while only the G-Slate will be running on Google’s latest Honeycomb software.

NVIDIA has broken the graphics barrier again with the Kal-El quad core processor. Tablets take first blood this August.

NVIDIA has just unchained a beast, and it’s name is Kal-El. With a name that seems to have been rooted out from the Superman franchise, this quad-core behemoth we call a chip is touted to be twice as powerful as the Tegra 2, and that’s really something. The chip will most likely be named as Tegra 3 once it comes out to tablets this August.

"A premium mobile HD entertainment experience on a tablet. Welcome to T-Mobile G-Slate with Google, by LG."

It’s got 3D Cameras, it runs on Honeycomb 3.0, plus it has Tegra 2. What’s not to love about the LG G-Slate? Well we’ll give you some ideas on what’s MORE to love about the tablet with a short video demo we found over at Youtube (oh, youtube, where can we be without ye?). And although the video looks a little unpolished, it gives us a clear idea on its hardware specs along with a cool demo on how the 3D feature would look like once the 3D stereoscopic cameras have kicked in. Probably the only apprehension we have with the LG G-Slate is the size of the display, but hey, atleast we can expect some decent prices once it comes out.

Check out the video after the break!

It may be no Nintendo 3DS where it doesn't need a pair of glasses to view 3D content, but the LG G-Slate is still slated to become the best Android tablet out there.

Looks like it’s all out for T-Mobile as they uncover the specs and details of the much hyped LG G-Slate tablet. The G-Slate, which is hoping to become the best Android tablet to date, so far has an impressive roster of features which include the much anticipated Honeycomb, a dual-core Tegra 2 chipset, an 8.9-inch 3D display topped off with a 3D camera. However, the tablet won’t be anything near the Nintendo 3DS as the device needs glasses in order to properly view the 3D content.
