April showers will bring the Acer Iconia Tab A510 and Acer Iconia Tab A700 quad-core tablets
While not official, Acer also revealed tentative pricing for the pair. The Acer Iconia Tab A510 will run 500EUR after taxes, while a 64GB Acer Iconia Tab A700 will cost no more than 749EUR. Both models should start with versions carrying at least 16GB each. Tablet Community said it was told that if competition forces the issue, these prices could be cut. U.S. pricing is expected to follow the same numerical amounts as the Euro figures, but just be priced in U.S. Dollars instead. ($499 to $799).
Besides the previously mentioned quad-core 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor on board, the pair both are equipped with a 10.1 inch screen. The Acer Iconia Tab A510 display has a resolution of 1280 x 800 while the Acer Iconia Tab A700 offers a much crisper resolution of 1920 x 1080.

By the time it's April, the iPad 3 would've been announced which is definitely not a good time to launch the Iconia Tab.

Lol, sadly I agree. I'm rooting for Acer though.

Holy s**t, 749 Euros? I'm no Apple fan but I'd honestly rather just get an iPad.
