Acer has outed its first quadcore Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, the Acer Iconia Tab A510, a 10.1-inch slate running Android 4.0 on NVIDIA's Tegra 3 chipset. The A510 has a 1280 x 800 10-point touchscreen with 85-degree viewing angles, a microHDMI port, micro USB 2.0 port and microSD card reader. Inside there's 32GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, along with WiFI a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. A front camera runs at 1-megapixel and is fixed focus, while the 5-megapixel rear camera supports autofocus and can simultaneously snap stills while recording HD video. Polaris Office 3.5 along with various other apps are preloaded, together with Acer's own clear.fi DLNA streaming system and the Acer Ring UI. The chassis is 10.2(w) x 6.9(d) x 0.43(h) inches and weighs a little over 24 oz, and bears both Acer and Olympics logos as it's apparently an "Olympic Games Tablet Edition." The Acer Iconia Tab A510 is up for pre-sale today, priced at $449.99, and available in black or silver. A matching case with integrated stand is priced at $39.99. [gallery]

It's that time of the quadannual cycle again. With the 2012 Summer Olympics in London getting closer and closer, the endorsements and marketing are going to start ramping up any day now. Acer seems to be getting an early start: they've unveiled the Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Edition at CeBIT in Germany. There's nothing extraordinary about the Android tablet: it's got the same specs and internals as the as-yet unreleased standard version, with a spiffy Olympic rings logo and a silver-on-black color scheme.

This decidedly mid-range phone has all the basic goodies crammed into a 3.7-inch form factor, with the notable addition of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch.

Good news today comes in the form of the official Android 4.0 ICS builds for both tablets being leaked over on XDA.
