Acer Introduces Iconia Tab A700 with 1920 x 1200 Display, Tegra 3

Paul Lilly

On paper, Acer's newly unveiled Iconia Tab A700 appears full of win. It has a premium 10.1-inch Full HD 1080p touchscreen display, but not one of those panels sporting a 1920x1080 resolution. No, this one boasts 1200 horizontal lines across the screen (16:10 ratio), which helps add up to a 55 percent higher pixel density compared to 1280x800 displays. It also packs an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor underneath the hood and 32GB of onboard storage.

This is the part where Billy Mays, if he were still around and pitching the Iconia Tab A700 at four in the morning, would excitedly talk about the tablet's Dolby Mobile 3 with 5.1 channel home theater surround sound capabilities when piped through HDMI to your big screen TV.

Rounding out the feature-set is 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot with support for up to 64GB microSD cards, micro USB 2.0 port, 1MP fixed-focus front-facing camera, 5MP rear-facing camera with auto-fucos and HD recording, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, and a 9800 mAh battery good for up to 10.5 hours of video playback or nearly 8 hours of surfing the Web.

All this comes wrapped in Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) with a $450 price tag on top. The A700 is available for pre-sale in silver (A700-10s32u) or black (A700-10k32u) .
