Acer Iconia Tab A501 Hands-on
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.
