Acer Iconia Tab A510 to hit the EU in March with 18 hours of battery life and decent pricing
The Acer Iconia Tab A510 that we handled last month at the CES expo, has been tipped for arrival in France and probably the rest of Europe as well next month. 

The selling point of this 10" tablet is that it sports a gargantuan 9800mAh battery, making it a bit heavier than the Asus Transformer Prime, but lasting the impressive 18 hours on a single charge, which is twice the best Android tablets in that respect.

This battery performance is despite the hefty 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 silicon, powering a 10" 1280x800 pixels display. Not bad at all, and hopefully a sign of things to come. The price has stayed pretty decent as well - the Acer Iconia Tab A510 is said to hit French stores with the 399 Euro price tag (~$527), which is a very good starting point for 18 hours of battery life.

Granted, this is for the Wi-Fi version only, and if you want the SIM card slot and more memory, you'd splurge more, but that is so with any other slate. If this thing comes to the US, the price will translate probably to less than $500, and the Transformer Prime will start feeling rather uneasy in its Android royal chair.

Extra weight is worth additional 8hrs of battery life.

9x more battery life and 1/4 the weight of my laptop. It may be time to start looking at tablets. If only this came with a dock like the transformer prime.

Hehehe,indeed Samsung has to come strong n cheap. No one will feel cheated buying this new quad core tablets cos indeed they perform flawlessly. I even have a felling that because of the processor and i.c.s all de devices from other manufacturers will be equally snappy.
