cracked open by iFixit today, so head on over to check out all the bits and pieces that make up your new device. DROID 4 owners will also be thrilled to know its already been rooted! You can get it now, and it works much like the method used for the DROID RAZR and RAZR Maxx.
Ice Cream Sandwich. After initially launching the new Iconia A200 tablet last month and promising a quick update to ICS, we can safely say it is finally rolling out today.

Apparently that concern is justified. According to German site Tablet Test, the A700 base model will have a price tag of €549, about $720 in United States dollars.
A500, though the upgrade is considerable if you've been feeling the need for speed. The A510 gets Nvidia's Tegra 3 system on a chip, with four cores running at a reported 1.3Ghz each. Other than that, you get the same shell, 1280x800resolution and ten-inch screen. Oh, and one more thing: Ice Cream Sandwich running out of the box. The tablet was shown off at a pre-CeBIT presentation in Hamburg, and German site Tablet Community (no relation) got a good look.
