Acer held its preparatory conference for CES recently and allowed the participants of the meeting a glimpse of their lastest android tablet.
However, while Acer did not give away any details about the tablet device, the fleeting view of the device gave the impression that it would be the Iconia Tab A700, which has been discussed and spied upon in recent times.
Folks at The Verge, in the meantime, were able to spend some time with the tablet that revealed some important spec details. The tablet will be powered by a 1.3 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor and will have a 10.1 inch display with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels. The tablet will come pre-loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Further, the Acer Iconia Tab A700 will have a rear mounted 5 megapixel camera with LED Flash along with a microSD card slot and an HDMI port. The tablet also has a front camera and is powered by a 9800 mAh battery pack. For connectivity, it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. Also, with a thickness of 9.8mm, the A700 is clearly out of the slimmest tablet race, though it’s quite light and hence easy to hold and operate.
The tablet is expected to ship around the second quarter of this year.
