While all eyes were on the quad-core Acer Iconia Tab A700 with its high resolution screen at CES, another quad-core tablet from Acer was making less of a splash, but the A510 has now been given some promotion ahead of its launch in April.
While Acer weren’t showing off the Iconia Tab A510 in Las Vegas, the new tablet was on show at the Nvidia booth and ahead of the CeBIT trade show in Germany it has again been shown off by Acer, this time with a price tag attached.
The 10.1in A510, an update to last years Iconia Tab A500, will go on sale in Europe in April with a price tag of €500 which equates to £415 in today’s money but as we all know direct currency conversions are a little pointless when it comes to gadgets. We expect it to retail in the UK for around £500.
The Acer Iconia Tab A510 is, like the A700, powered by the quad-core Tegra 3 SoC and will come with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on board. It will have 1GB of RAM and come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions. A 3G model, called the A511, will be available also.
Unlike the A700 which has a 1920×1200 resolution screen, the A510 will have a more typical resolution of 1280×800. The tablet will also feature a microSD card slot for expanding the storage, a mini-USB port for charging and data transfer and a mini-HDMI port for outputting video to your TV.
While the Acer A510 won’t revolutionise the tablet market, the presence of a quad-core processor and the latest version of Android will make this an enticing prospect for many. Of course if Acer could price it a bit more competitively it may have a better chance of success.
