Ready for another Android tablet? Of course you are. If there’s one thing the world needs more of, it’s Android tablets.
The Acer Iconia Tab A510, unveiled at CES back in January, has finally landed in the US, becoming the second quad-core tablet to hit the market behind - you guessed it - the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
To be fair, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 sounds not bad. It has a 10.1in display (1280 x 800), Tegra 3 processor, 5MP rear camera and a cursory front shooter, 32GB internal storage, 1GB of RAM, Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and a beefy 9,800mAh battery.
Yanks can grab the Iconia Tab A510 from Acer’s website for $449.99. I don’t mean to be a party pooper, but the iPad 2 is $399 and the new iPad starts at $499. Just saying.
Incidentally, Amazon UK is offering an ‘Olympic Edition’ (whatever that means) Acer Iconia Tab A510 for £369.99. Oh wait! From Acer's website: "This Special Edition Tablet carries the symbol of the iconic Olympic rings in its design - representing the strength, confidence and possibility that the Olympics stands for." Oh. My. God.
In other Acer news, the Iconia A500 and A100 will get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich over the next couple of weeks. The official release schedule is right here.
