With the recent launch of the Asus Transformer Prime and the upcoming CES 2012 event in Las Vegas, we’re not surprised that new tablets based on the quad-core Tegra 3 are beginning to leak.
First hinted at in mid-November, the Acer Iconia Tab A700 has now made an appearance on the Russian tech site nomobile.ru, complete with what appears to be legit product shots of the tablet. According to the source, the 10.1-inch A700 will be 650 grams (1.43 pounds), 9.8mm (0.386 inches) thick and will use a FullHD resolution display at 1920x1200 pixels. The latter somewhat confirms previous rumors found from the User Profile Agent in Acer’s website. Other supposed features include a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor, micro-HDMI, micro-USB, microSD reader, SIM slot, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 3.0 and wireless-n. With so many connectivity options and a hi-res screen, the source still claims up to 10 hours of video playback with its 9800mAh battery.
Unfortunately, no details have been given with regards to specific Android version or pricing, but nomobile.ru expects the A700 to ship sometime March or April. We expect to hear more details directly from Acer themselves by the time CES rolls along.
