Acer might be the new kid on the block_when it comes to tablets, but who isn't anyway? Despite that, the_company managed to pull off a well-designed 10.1-inch slate codenamed_Acer Iconia Tab A501, coming not only on Verizon, but obviously to_AT&T with support for the carrier's 4G network as well. The_brushed aluminum back on the Android Honeycomb tablet and its crisp_screen will definitely appeal to many._Actually, if you take a closer look at the video, you can notice that_the Iconia Tab A501 runs Froyo due to the early prototype unit we saw at CTIA,_but the final version will feature the tablet-optimized Honeycomb. _

While it lacks the extremely slim_profile of recently announced tablets (the depth here is 0.52" or 13.3mm), it still has a very premium_feel due to the quality materials used. The weight is also_substantial – with 25.75 ounces you can almost use this tablet for_your daily workout. In terms of hardware specs, it stands on par with_what most of the Honeycomb crowd can offer: 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 250_dual-core processor with integrated graphics, a 5-megapixel_rear-facing camera and an HDMI-out port.

With a release date in the second_quarter of the year, the only thing we wish we knew now is the price. But whatever it_is, we hope Acer can overcome its shortage of tablets we recently_reported_about, and fulfil our gadget hunger on time.
