Acer teases their first quad-core Android tablet


Today Acer announced a new pair of ultrabooks, but the real star of the show was an unnamed Android tablet they teased for about five seconds. No details were provided on the tablet, but we recognized it as the previously-leaked Acer Iconia Tab A700.

The only details that Acer provided on the tablet was that it had a quad-core processor and 10-inch display with native full HD 1080p. Earlier leaks suggested the Iconia Tab A700 also features¬†1920×1200 resolution, Tegra 3 processor, 5 MP camera with flash, Dolby Digital audio, micro-HDMI port, microSD card slot, a dedicated rotation lock switch and a¬†9800 mAh battery.

We got to spend a few minutes of hands-on time with the A700 and found it was running a mostly stock version of Android 4.0. The only addition I saw was a “ring UI” that appeared on the lock screen and allowed you to quickly launch multiple applications. An Acer representative said they don’t really plan to mess with the stock Android UI too much. Instead they will focus on other value-added services like AcerCloud.

No release date or pricing information was revealed, but we should learn more at MWC next month. Check out the gallery below and come back in a few minutes to see the hands-on video. (It’s uploading now).
