Last week Acer founder Stan Shih promised big things from its mobile division in 2012, and it looks set to kick things off in style by revealing the quad-core Iconia Tab A700 tablet at CES.
That's the word from Russian site NoMobile, which claims the Tegra 3-powered slate will be arriving on the shelves before the end of Q1.
The A700 is the big brother of the Iconia Tab A200 we heard about earlier this month. But while the A200 makes do with a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 tablet, it's quad-core Tegra 3 action all the way with the A700.
The 10.1in screen is said to come with an impressive 1920 x 1200 resolution, while the camera is a 5-megapixel effort and battery life is pegged at 10 hours.
As for connections, NoMobile says we can look forward to seeing a SIM slot, microUSB ports, a dedicated rotation lock switch, a standard audio jack an a micro-HDMI port dotted around the A700's frame.
The site insists that the Iconia Tab A700 will be in attendance at CES, the annual tech extravaganza that kicks off in Las Vegas in a week or so's time. Sounds good to us, especially if claims that it'll be going on sale as soon as March 2012 are on the money.
