After exciting many of the attendees of the CES 2012 held earlier this month, Acer has finally made the Iconia Tab A700 official—complete with a target price of €549 or around $720 for the 16GB model;  €649 for the 32GB; and €749 or around $1000 for the 64GB model. The prices were unveiled during a press event held in Hamburg. However, since these are just target prices, Acer has not made any official promise to either increase or decrease these prices. The release date is slated for Q2 of 2012.

Features of the Tab A700 include a 1080p resolution, Tegra-3 quad-core processor, Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 1920×1200 IPS panel, 10-inch display, and 1GB RAM. It also has a 5MP rear camera, USB host port, HDMI capabilities, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 9800mAh battery.

Considering that the Tab A700 is one mean machine, this gives Acer a different appeal with its clientele. Especially since it has always been recognized as a low-cost manufacturer using high-end parts, this might signify change with the release of the Tab A700.


We’ll be on the lookout for more news, especially with the Mobile World Congress drawing closer.
