Acer's Tegra-based Android Tablet on Video

Engadget points to three videos listed on YouTube that briefly demonstrate Acer's upcoming 10-inch Android tablet. Currently very little is known about the device, however it will supposedly be powered by Nvidia's dual-core Tegra 2 platform and offer custom Acer Android apps.

As seen in the three leaked videos, Acer is utilizing the tablet's gyroscope to allow touch-free page turns. It also appears that Acer is trying to use the gyroscope for zooming in and out of photographs without using fingers, however in its current state, the function doesn't appear to be working correctly.

There's also a humorous moment in one of the videos as the user was practically stabbing the screen with her fingertip in order to get the tablet to load the image at full screen. Once the tablet played nice, the image appeared as if pasted into an actual photograph book-- the user flipped through the pages by tilting the tablet from side to side.

Judging by their appearance, the leaked videos were shot during internal testing. One clip even revealed that the tablet is currently using Froyo although Acer clearly said that it's waiting on Honeycomb before the tablet hits the market.

To see all three videos (with Engadget commercials), head here. One of them has appeared on YouTube which can be seen below.
