When word got out of Lenovo making plans on using the Tegra 3 chipset, it’s no surprise that other manufacturers are also joining in the bandwagon to develop new devices sporting the latest quad-core offering from NVIDIA.
According to leaked User Agent Profiles (UAProf) discovered by Blog of Mobile!!, Acer has two upcoming Android tablets, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 and A511 tablets. These could be Acer’s response to manufacturing rivals such as Lenovo and ASUS, which are already making plans of releasing quad-core tablets by the end of this year.
The UAProfs also revealed some interesting tidbits of the device such as a 10-inch touchscreen capable of 1280×800 resolution, GeForce GPU core mounted on the Tegra 3, as well 3G and 4G connectivity. It is believed that the A510 will likely be the Wi-Fi version, while the A511 would be sporting the 4G radios.
Acer hasn’t yet officially slated a release date for the devices, but many are hoping that they’d come shipped with the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board.
As of now, the only device to have successfully used the Tegra 3 chipset comes from ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime.
