The Acer Iconia Tab A510, previously only seen to debut in Europe, has been approved by the FCC and could see North American store shelves soon. The device itself won’t skip a beat, as the A510 is amped up with NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor running at 1.3GHz. It looks much like the A500, but will outperform it in every way.

The A510 has a 1280×800 resolution over a 10.1″ display, 1GB of RAM, and will ship with Android 4.0. This version will be WiFi only, but Acer plans to release another model, the A511, integrating 4G data. Upon purchase, you’ll have the option of buying a 16, 32, or 64GB model. The starting price is said to be 499 Euros ($655.18).

It also sports a massive 9,800 mAh battery for an entire day (or two) of usage. Once this hits the US, there will finally be an Android tablet worthy of competing with the Transformer Prime. With both equipped with a Tegra 3, ICS, and 1GB RAM – it’s going to be a close race. Hopefully we see this tablet in March as previously mentioned.
