The Acer Iconia Tab A700 is Acer’s first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet. It is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor comes with 1GB RAM and a 10.1 inch 1080p “IPS qulitiy” panel has a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels similar to the Asus Transformer Prime TF700T which has the same res. Acer has created a customized ICS UI (Ice Cream Sandwich User Interface) for the Iconia Tab A700 and the major difference in Acer’s UI compared to the regular Google ICS UI is the “ring”, a lockscreen launcher with a selection of shortcuts available you can choose depending on where you drag your finger.
It weights about 650 grams (1.43 pounds), and measures 9.8mm in thickness packs a 9800 mAh battery, which according to Acer can deliver up to 10 hours of continuous video playback. Of course it comes with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and even 3G connectivity!
It has a HDMI-port, microSD card slot and micro USB-port. Possible but not yet confirmed is that you can charge the slate via the micro USB. We’ll keep you updated on that as well as if there will be a release at all…
While Engadget said:
“We were told repeatedly that this is just a technology demo and not a consumer product.” … “so don’t be surprised if you never see an A700 come to market.”
“No official word on pricing just yet, but Acer says the Iconia Tab A700 should arrive in the second quarter of 2012.”
So we’ll have to wait on an official release date from Acer to see what’s the deal. But I’m sure we’ll find out soon. Subrcibe to RSS, find on us Facebook, Google+, or follow us Twitter to stay updated as we’ll keep you informed about the Acer Iconia Tab A700.
