Acer has unveiled a bunch of new devices in a pre-CES event in Las Vegas, including ultrabooks, a new cloud service and a new tablet – the A700. The tablet had made a pre-CES special appearance in Russia late last year.
The A700 is among the first Android tablets to come with a 10.1-inch display with a whopping FullHD (1920 x 1080) resolution. Internally, the tablet packs in a gig of RAM, a microSD card slot, an HDMI port, Wi-Fi and a bunch of sensors. While not the thinnest, the A700 is relatively thin with a 9.8mm waistline.
The A700 is powered by a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 quad-core SoC from Nvidia and runs in the latest version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich – with some minor modifications from Acer.
Acer did not announce anything about the pricing of the tablet or as to when the A700 will hit the retail stores. Compared to all the previous tablet offerings from Acer, the A700 is definitely a step up. Now, if only the company can price the tablet right and release it quickly as well.
