Acer Iconia Tab A700 Shows Up In Russia – On Its Way To CES 2012 With A 1920×1200 Display


A pair of Acer Iconia Tabs showed up in Russia today and since we know just about all there is to know on the more affordable A200, we wanted to focus on the higher powered, more premium A700 model. The Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core toting Acer Iconia Tab A700 will be arriving at CES 2012 next month (where the entire Phandroid team will be on-hand) and to give you a better idea of what to expect, this new tablet will have a 10.1-inch 1920×1200 resolution display that is sure to make die-hard Android fanboys shed tears of joy.

Along the sides of the tab are SIM and micro USB slots, rotation lock switch, audio jack and micro HDMI port. The rear of the device is noticeably different from the A200, featuring a 5MP shooter accompanied by an LED flash and Dolby Digital tramp stamp. The whole tab weighs in at only 1.43lbs and will last about 10 hours in between charges. The Acer Iconia Tab A700 is looking towards a March release. Only thing left out was the actual pricing but if cheaper than the T-Prime, should this should give ASUS a run for their money. Competition is always good. What do you guys think of it?

  1. the day this hits stores im selling my A500 and getting this!!!!

  2. HUGE fan of Acer and this news really got me excited for this Acer tablet.

    I was going to get the Asus Transformer Prime, but after hearing about all the Wifi & GPS issues, plus my personal issues with problems in Asus laptops, I now have another tablet with Tegra-3 to look forward to! Go Acer!!!

    1. I haven’t heard of any problems with the wifi and gps on production models. The only issues I heard about were test and review models.

  3. If it’s better then my A500. I want it.

  4. Man, I don’t know which tablet to get now.

    1. Wait a couple months. I think new tablets are on the horizon, and by then it will be clear if the Asus Transformer Prime Wifi & GPS issues are fixed or not.

      I just hope they come down a little in price.

  5. I’d be surprised if the Acer will be less than the ASUS. That screen will be in short supply and high demand, and likely will increase the cost. Also, the higher resolution will mean lower performance in gaming. I’m sticking with the Prime.

    1. Do you currently own the Prime? Are you having any issues with Wifi & GPS?

      1. Mine has no problem with either

      2. No issuws at all

      3. No problems here with gps and wifi either.

  6. does it have ICS? because i cant even take honeycomb serious

    1. lol

  7. will wait for samsung’s more efficient A15 cores :)

    BTW, here’s how the droid RAZR could’ve looked like

    1. I like that design way more than what they went with

      1. Me aswell, It has some sleekness and coolness not seen on other droids

  8. I am content with my TouchPad but this thing would be like heaven.

  9. Other impressive specs includes 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a front camera that can record video in HD-quality, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 3.0, 3G, slot for SIM-cards and microSD, micro-USB, micro-HDMI ports, 3.5mm audio jack and sports 9800mAh battery which provides decent back-up…….

  10. Why do people insist on having these high resolutions on such a small screen? With the screen size you do not need anything over 1360(6)x768, Anything more is just wasted honestly. hmm not sure what the 16:10 res compared to that res as I know the 16:10 res of 1280×720 is 1280×800 or so. To be honest I would be fine with having only 720p on a screen of this size.

    1. And more:
      bigger screen resolution will demand much more power from the processor unit.

      1. Yeah, but that’s what they said when phones hit 800×480 then 1280×720. And it’s a tablet. They already get great battery life =)

        1. Yes, Chris, you are right in some case, but… It is FULLHD! :)
          IMO, too much even for Q-Core Tegra 3. And, as mentioned – not so needed for screen sizes ~10.
          It is better for me to stay with 720p, but to have better performance. Much better performance. ;)

    2. Are you blind? That’s like saying 320×480 is good enough for a phone. Unless you have terrible eyes you certainly can see pixels on an iPad. Anything below 200 or so PPI is noticeable.

  11. IT IS FAKE. I’m from Russia, and just have read the source – stupid joke only.

  12. 1920×1200 resolution = lag and lag and lag….. more lag

  13. Waiting for the nexus tablet

  14. I had an a500 and took it back to pick up the TF101. Couldn’t be happier. Asus updates on a regular basis. Can’t say the same for Acer and alot of other vendors.
