It was something that we expected to see soon enough, and Acer is bringing the fire with a new Iconia Tab that will feature a 1080p display, not to mention the quad-core Tegra 3 processor. We had seen leaked pics
of this Iconia A700 tablet just before the new year, but this is the first time we've seen it turned on, and it's looking pretty good.
During Acer's presentation today, VP of products Campbell Kan came on stage to show off the A700, but the reveal was incredibly quick, just one video and that was it. We're hoping to have some hands-on video for you soon enough. However, the tablet is pretty much what we expected from leaked info. It's got a 10" IPS display with a crazy 1920x1200 resolution, the quad-core Tegra 3 clocked at 1.3
GHz, and the usual bells and whistles like Bluetooth, microSD card slot and HDMI port. The tab is a bit thick at about 9.8mm.
It will also ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and is expected to be released in Q2 of 2012. From what we've seen, it looks like the tab is running stock Android, but does have custom widgets, but we do need to confirm that.
