Acer Iconia Tab A700 Hands-on Review
Back at CES 2012, we had the chance to spend some one-on-one time with the Acer Iconia Tab A510. Overall, we were quite happy with the tablet. Today, we have our hands on the Acer Iconia Tab A700, which should not be too different from its close relative, but it will be marketed as a more premium alternative to the Tab A510. 

That is because the front of the Iconia Tab A700 is occupied by a 10.1-inch display with the impressive resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. It goes without saying that looking at it is a pleasure to the eye due to the amount of detail that the screen delivers. The striking colors and wide angles of view only contribute to the pleasant viewing experience. In terms of design,  the Iconia Tab A700 is neither the slimmest, nor the lightest tablet we have ever played with, but it isn't bulky either, so we can live with the way it has been designed. Furthermore, the choice of materials does not make the device feel too premium, but with a display like that, would anyone really pay attention?

Inside the Acer Iconia Tab A700 we have a mighty Tegra 3 quad-core processor, which handles all computations without a hitch delivering a smooth Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experience. The modifications that have been done to the platform appear to be mostly superficial, and the widgets that Acer has included will surely come in handy.

In a nutshell, if you disregard the non-premium feel of the materials it is made out of, the Acer Iconia Tab A700 is a pretty good offering. It performs well and boasts a display that is a pleasure to look at. But, of course, whether it would really be a device worth picking will depend on how much it will cost once it hits the market.

Yeah, i will, because there is the Asus Infinity Pad with premium materials and killer design.

Android nowadays is all about higher specs and resolution. With nearly every high-end tablet having a quad-core or a highly-optimized dual-core it will boil down to design and price. I'll pretty much disregard the design if the price is low enough. :p

The new interface is sweet and the resolution even better.

It appears that other then the 32.GB of internal storage that the A700 is using the new Kai SoC used in the new Nexus 7 by Google for $200 and it's own A100 for $200. No IPS or Super IPS+ display like Asus TF 700T. No 8mp camera, no spun aluminum case an on and on. Acer has always stood for cheap and corner cutting. Just like their junk eMachines.
