Mysterious Acer tablet appears in benchmarks
At the beginning of 2012, Acer announced its Iconia Tab A700 at a time in the market when tablet specs such as quad-core processors and Full-HD resolution were the very cutting edge of technology. More importantly the Taiwanese manufacturer managed to put this, an enormous 9800mAh battery and 1GB of RAM in a 10-inch package at the very attractive price point of $450.

Iconia A700 – that's the actual device name. What our research shows, however, is that the A700 sometimes shows up as the A700-TA1. You may wonder why this is important, and here's the reason: a mysterious device popped up on GFXBench named simply 'Acer TA2'. The test shows that the unknown device runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, has a resolution of 2560x1344 and is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz.

In other words, as you probably guessed already, we may very well be looking at the successor of the Iconia A700. If it is, we sure as hell hope it continues the trend of high-end hardware that is priced aggressively for the masses.
