Acer Coming Up with Tegra 3 Tablets Packing 1920×1200 Resolution

Acer’s Iconia Tabs A700 and A701 tablets feature Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-a-chip with quad Cortex A9 processing cores, according to User Agent Profiles (UAProf) discovered by on Acer’s official support site.

The XML files for both the Iconia Tab A700 and the Iconia Tab A701 show the two devices sporting display resolutions of 1920×1200 and the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor.  The resolution, according to several reports, is comparable to that of a 42-inch TV, which led several knowledgeable people to conclude that the devices will have at least 10-inch screens.

The two tablets will most likely come preloaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, or at least Android 3.2 Honeycomb.  Tech circles expect the A700 to have Wi-Fi-only support, while the A701 is expected to have 3G or 4G connectivity.

Other possible features floated around for the two tablets include a 16:10 aspect ratio, 1080p video playback, and 10-inch screen size.  Main and secondary cameras are also expected, as are HDMI, Bluetooth, and GPS.

Acer’s support site also recently leaked the UAProfs for two other upcoming tablets, the Iconia Tab A510 and Iconia Tab A511, both of which have display resolution of 1280×800.

The tablets are expected to be debuted by Acer at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012.

Would you prefer the quad-core Iconia Tab A700/A701 to the quad-core ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime?

    OMG. Do Want. I’ve been wanting something I could sit on the couch and browse the web with, but 1280×800 isn’t doing it for me. (I already have that in a laptop)

    I’m kind of torn between the Prime and the Acer… but, that resolution on the Acer plus prob will come with ICS… I prob would go for that! Not really in the market for a tablet right now though… just picked up the Galaxy tab 7.0 plus. :-)

    I just noticed that “chinese” manufacturers are packing 1920×1200. Acer, Asus, etc…
    Samsung is using a 1280×800, but I’m currently using a 24 inch moniter with a resoulution lower than that,,,, Sooo yep.
