Acer is one of those companies that’s slowly making a lot of noise in the Android tablet world. With the release of the Iconia Tab A700, it marks the first Android tablet available with a 1080p display. Now it’s not all about the display as there’s plenty of power under the hood and it’s priced very competitively at $449. The real question is if it’s enough to fight off the upcoming ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 with similar specs? Hit the break to find out and you can also check out my initial hands on review.
Acer is making a splash with the Iconia Tab A700. They actually beat ASUS by being the first Android tablet to market with a full 1080p (1920 x 1200) display. For those who want all the bells and whistles, this one is going to be hard to ignore since it’s priced at $449. It features a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1200) Full HD display, a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core, 12 core NVIDIA GeForce GPU, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD slot for an additional 32GB of storage, 5MP rear camera, 1MP front-facing camera, Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, GPS, micro USB, micro HDMI, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
This one’s a little thick at 10.92mm and isn’t light at all as it weighs in at 667 grams. We will do a full review shortly, but for now check out my initial hands on.
Last week Acer announced its new Iconia Tab A700 was available for pre-order at “national electronics retailers” in the U.S. If you don’t want to wait for a retailer, you can now place an order at the Acer Store, which reports the units are “in stock” for the sum of $450.
The Iconia Tab A700 is a 10.1-inch screen tablet with a 1920 x 1200 resolution display. Which means you can get a full 1080p HD experience right on the tablet. Other features include the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 32GB of storage onboard, Dolby Mobile 3+ technology with 5.1 channel surround sound, and the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

During CES a few months ago Acer debuted a Tegra 3 tablet known as the Iconia Tab A700 and since then the device kind of disappeared off the radar. Well I am happy to report that this 10.1-inch 1080p display carrying device is still moving forward as it’s made its way to the FCC. This WiFi-only version has been approved by the FCC and while documentation may be limited it does show that it will carry a 1.3GHz quad-core NVIDIA SoC and will be running Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the gate. No word on an official launch date but it’s good to see that this tablet is still moving forward. Of course when it does finally arrive you’ll be paying a pretty penny for it.
The Taiwanese company Acer, is enticing many a tablet buyer with Iconia Tab A700‘s impressive specs. Breaking back in November, the 1920×1200, 1080p displayed 1.3GHz Tegra 3 tablet is certainly turning heads. However, there wasn’t a word on how much this tablet would be going for. Well, that changes as the German web site Tablet Test has listed the A700 for €549 for the 16GB model and €749 for the 64GB model or £460 ($720) and £630 ($982) in the UK respectively.
While this may be a bit pricy the specs are certainly worth it. Acer is looking to push past its lackluster sales performance with the A500 and is looking to throw its weight around with the best of them with the A700. Only time will tell, and we will have to wait and see when we see it’s release in quarter two of this year.
Acer just keeps it coming. After just seeing certain Acer tablets would feature Tegra 3 chips, we now know that Acer plans on bringing even more quad-core speed demons in the not to distant future. Another user agent profile has slipped out of the cracks clearly showing specific details of what will be the Iconia A700 and A701 tablets. Here you will see that not only are there Tegra 3 quad-core chips, but there’s also a rather monstrous 1920×1200 display. Tegra 3 chip, check. 1900×1200 display, check. Ice Cream Sandwich’s full hardware acceleration, check. Ladies and gentlemen, let the new era of the tablet wars begin.
