Acer has just announced a tablet that really wants to compete with Apple’s iPad. The Iconia Tab A700 comes with impressive specs and a decent price, which could guarantee it’s success among Android tablets.
The Acer Iconia Tab A700 features a 10.1-inch 1920×1200 Full HD display, 32GB of internal storage and it only costs $450, which means it will be 25% cheaper than the 32GB iPad 3. It’s resolution can’t compare with the iPad’s, though it does provide an extremely good quality to the user and we suppose that you can’t even notice the difference.
Currently most tablet come with an 1280×800 pixels resolution, which provide a 55% lower pixel density than the Acer A700. We haven’t been able to get our hands on it yet, but from what it looks like, its display cannot be compared with any other Android tablet.
The tablet costs $150 less than the 32GB new iPad 3 and it even comes with a microSD card slot, which can extend the storage capacity by up to 64GB. It also sports a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU, 1GB of RAM and it comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
It’s connectivity features include a micro-HDMI port, which allows you connect it to a home theater system or use it as a secondary display, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, GPS, and 3-compass. Unfortunately it doesn’t feature 3G or 4G, which could be a turn off for some. It’s 9800 mAh battery allows it to play video for 10.5 hours and it can also allow you to use for quite a long time too.
It weight 1.47 pounds, just like the iPad 3, but heavier than other Android tablets. The Acer Iconia Tab A700 is already available for pre-order and it will begin shipping at the end of this month.
