Acer is all set to release their next venture into the Android tablet market with the Iconia Tab A510. We’ve seen countless rumors of the new NVIDIA Tegra 3 tablet and after unveiling it back in January we are now hearing it will officially hit the streets and consumers hands in March — complete with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and that quad-core processor.
Acer announced two new Android 4.0 quad-core tablets in the A510 and the 3G/4G sporting A511 and while we currently have no details regarding a US launch like the smaller sibling the A200 that is available now. We do know the A510 will be available across Europe starting next month. Priced around 399 Euro’s ($499 USD) it will be right up there with the Transformer Prime in both price and specs.
Other than the impressive quad-core processor the specs are similar to other tablets. We have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 10.1″ 1280 x 800 resolution display, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. One area that separates the A510 from others is the huge 9,800 mAh battery under the hood that should provide hours of usage. The Acer A510 will be available in black and silver and initially only the WiFi model will be for sale with announcements for the A511 coming later.
As soon as we hear more details regarding the release date and availability here in the US we will be sure to update. I’m sure many would love an alternative to the often out of stock Transformer Prime, but still want a quad-core Android 4.0 tablet.
