The Acer Iconia Tab A700 is now available in stores in the US. This device, dubbed as Acer’s flagship tablet for this summer, is available at the price of [easyazon-link asin=”B0083PR7N2″ locale=”us”]$449.99[/easyazon-link] from the Acer website ten days after the device had been released for pre-order.
For those familiar with the Acer A510, this tablet sports the exact same external as that device. Underneath, however, its hardware specifications are better. The Acer Iconia Tab A700 has a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Super 4-Plus-1 processor with a clock speed of 1.3 GHz and an additional battery-saver core. Its RAM is a 1 GB DDR2 whereas its storage capacity is 32 GB. An onboard microSD memory slot supports up to 32 GB of memory expansion. Meanwhile, its operating system is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Acer Iconia Tab A700 moreover sports a Full HD multi-touch 1080p display measuring 10.1 inches diagonally. Its graphics are powered by the ultra low power high-performance 12-core NVIDIA GeForce GPU.
For connectivity, Acer offers Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, Standalone GPS, and GLONASS. Its front-facing camera provides excellent image quality with its 1 MP High Definition sensor. On the other hand, its rear-facing camera has a 5 MP sensor, and further, auto focus capability as well as video capture at 1080p MP4 format with 30 frames per second. Dolby Mobile 3+ audio, an HDMI port, and various sensors complete the package.
The device is a vast improvement from Acer’s earlier devices, which were quite uninspired models with ho-hum specifications. In all fairness, the earlier models had pocket-friendly prices that attracted those who did not make very high demands of their devices.
In contrast, the Acer Iconia Tab A700 is predicted to be a crowd pleaser with its specifications, most notably the quad-core processor and Android Ice Cream Sandwich. In fact, immediately after the device had been made public, the Acer website had already run out of stocks for the black-colored version. The silver one is still available, though, and Acer will likely soon replenish its stocks for the popular black color.
