Acer Releases Iconia Tab A700 – 10” Tablet with 1920x1200 Resolution

After Apple released its second iPad refresh, the one that brought a ridiculous 2048x1536 resolution to the 9.7” screen, it seemed fairly logical to think that the Android market would quickly try to match it. Indeed, this has been the case – and now it's Acer's turn, having updated the older A500 Iconia Tab with a new screen and some other enhancements. Behold - the Iconia Tab A700.

 

 

The 10.1” A700's claim to fame is a 1920x1200 screen resolution. That doesn't quite match the aforementioned iPad, of course, but it's still quite impressive in a world where most 10” tablets boast 1280x800 resolutions, and where most 15” laptops still pack 1366x768 pixels into their displays. Rounding off this screen upgrade is a 1.3Ghz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 32GB worth of flash memory, a MicroSD card slot good for up to a 32GB card, two tiny cameras (5-megapixel and 1-megapixel on the back and front, respectively), 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 support, standalone GPS, a Micro-HDMI video output and a standard headphone jack. All of this hardware is tightly crammed into a case measuring less than half an inch, and the whole thing weighs 1.47lbs. Not bad at all, I think.

 

 

The Iconia Tab A700 comes in either a black or silver case, and the price tag is USD $449.99 or less for either variation. Android 4.0 is preloaded, of course. Those looking to watch 1080p videos on their tablet or simply want a sharper screen would be wise to add the A700 to their list of devices to check out.
