As expected from a cellular technology trade show, AT&T took the opportunity to announce a new 4G-enabled tablet at this year’s CTIA event. This comes just one day after Sprint took the curtains off its own 4G tablet, the HTC Evo View.
The new AT&T tablet will be none other than the 10.1-inch Acer Iconia Tab A501, a device based on the previously shown Iconia Tab A500 but with 4G support. According to the press release, the Iconia Tab A501 will run on Android 3.0, utilize a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, front and rear-facing cameras, and can support 1080p playback through its HDMI-out. Other specs were not mentioned, but if it will be anything like the Iconia Tab A500, expect to see a micro-USB port, card reader, and a 1280x800 resolution screen on a 13mm thick body, all weighing about 700 grams total.
The Acer Iconia Tab A500 may also see a launch on Verizon’s 4G LTE network, but the device has yet to be released. Additional differences between the Iconia Tab A501 and Iconia Tab A500 are currently unknown.
There was no mention of pricing or specific release dates, but the press release claims the device is “expected in the second quarter.” The Iconia Tab A500, however, was spotted online for €499 a few weeks back.
