Acer has been a very busy bee in the Android tablet world this year, and the company’s most recent additions to its tab lineup can’t go unnoticed by any self-respecting tech lover. The Iconia Tab A210 has been shown off for the first time back in June without much fuss, but the 10-incher seems to be gaining some momentum.

Although it doesn’t yet have an official release date or pricing details attached to its name, the new A210 might be the subject of an exciting marketing campaign, kicked off with a YouTube promotional video.

The commercial, posted on Acer’s official channel just hours ago, focuses on the tab’s software first and foremost, which is a bit odd, considering that its tech specs and the supposedly advantageous quality-price ratio should actually be its strongest points.

Then again, it’s nice to see one of the big-time tech manufacturers focusing more on the human aspect of a gadget, and not just on cold numbers, facts, and specs. That said, the ad surely is a first, as it runs for almost two minutes without ever mentioning a hard fact about it, be it its processor’s speed, RAM, ROM, or the camera’s sensor.

The family-focused, heart-warming and friendly approach of the ad is surely not very original, however, but I can’t say it doesn’t work in this particular case. Anyway, I’m not going to comment any further on the video and let you watch it for yourselves.

I do have to quickly recap A210’s spec sheet, just to refresh your memory:

  • 10-inch capacitive touchscreen with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30L processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 or 16 GB of on-board storage
  • 3,260 mAh battery
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • MicroSD card slot for expanding the internal memory to up to 32 GB
  • 3G connectivity support
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • Front-facing camera
  • 712 grams weight
  • 10.24 x 6.89 x 0.49 inches dimensions

Anyone thinking of picking an A210 up once it’ll be released? Why? Why not?

  • I am currently testing an Iconia A510 (thanks to Acer Italy) and I must say it’s good. The A210 seems to have very similar specs, excepted for the 3G (+) and storage (-).
    Are you sure about the battery info? A510 has a 9800mAh, so 3260mAh seems too little for a 10-inch HD display! Full USB port on the side is very useful though, A510 needs the adaptor.

      It has 2x3260mAh batteries, and it’s awesome! It has great battery life. You can connect mouse, keyboard even gamepad in the usb port! Bought mine in the Netherlands last month, and still wondering why it isn’t out anywhere else.

    The TF700 seems more impressive, this tablet is more comparable to the TF300, but I don’t know why I would choose it over the TF300.

    Does this tablet have an hdmi port?

    • WhatNow

      no HDMI, but a full sized USB as well as micro USB. The A110/A100 7″ tablet has the HDMI while the A210/A200 has the USB. The A100 is going for $200 now, and the A200 is going for $300.
