Not long ago, someone started the rumor that Acer was planning on leaving the smartphone and tablet arena. Well, those speculation were quickly put to rest by the company. And now it seems like Acer is actually doing quite the contrary as it is working on a high-end tablet to whet the appetite of gadget lovers worldwide.
Acer Iconia Tab A700, which is a model that we have actually already heard of. And if its rumored tech specs are on the right track, it is going to be quite the beast.
