Acer is expanding its Iconia line of Android tablets with the A700. The 10.1-inch display on the A700 offers a high resolution of 1900 x 1200, making it one of the highest resolution Android tablets. The A700 is chock-full of good hardware components, making it a good deal for the $449 price.
The A700 runs the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes with 32 GB of storage. It is powered by the Nvidia Tegra 3, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor with 1 GB of memory. It has a microSD slot that can handle up to 64 GB of additional storage.
Acer has expansion adequately covered by including a USB 2.0 port and also HDMI for connecting to big screens. Audio is augmented with Dolby Mobile 3 to offer good sound for a tablet. The rear camera is 5 MP and there is a front camera for video calls.
The tablet weighs in just under 1.5 pounds and is thin at 0.43 inches. It is available in either silver or black for the same price. Battery life is claimed to be 13 hours which is probably accurate given the 9800 mAh battery. The tablet is available for preorder now from Acer.
