CES 2012 | Acer's next Tablet might feature ultra-high resolution

Two new tablets from Acer are on their way for their release at the CES 2012, one of which will be sporting a high resolution

Recently we came across some rumors about Acer withdrawing from the tablet market. However we may never be sure about it as a new tablet from Acer is also on its way for the CES. This time it seems Acer has also coined its effort more on the screen.

From some rumor we came to our knowledge that Apple’s iPad will be sporting displays with high resolution called “Ratina” display. So in the same way other manufacturers might also have felt the same need for their tablets, and Acer is another manufacturer included in the list.

Two tablets from Acer are to be showcased at the CES 2012, the Acer Iconia Tab A200 and the Acer Iconia Tab A700. Only one of these tab is expected to have a higher resolution display.

The A200 will be a model with lower specifications that sports 1GHz Tegra 2 CPU with a 10.1inch display capable of 1280x 800 pixels resolution. While, the A700 will feature a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor and the 10.1inch display will be capable of providing a resolution up to 1920 x 1200 pixels.

The tablets will be powered by some Android version. Some reports suggest the A700’s higher resolution may not have much application for such high resolution. So it may not be very advantageous as there are not many high resolution supporting applications, in Android till now. However, we find some in some time span.

But there is no doubt about the screen providing a very high resolution video display. One more factor this high resolution may affect is the browsing of the web pages. Till now the web pages are not fully optimized for the resolution of 1920 x 1200 screens so while browsing the web pages one might have to zoom the pages all the time in order to get a proper view.

These factors are also going to affect the iPad 3 if they have not found any alternative way with their browser. We will have to wait till the launch of the devices to see how these complaints are dodged.

 The actual release dates of the models are yet to be disclosed however ITProPortal claims them to be launched at the CES 2012.
