Acer Iconia Tab A700 priced and detailed

We know that Acer's impending Iconia Tab A700 will have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We know it'll have a quad-core 1.3 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 progressor. We know that HDMI, dual cameras, Wi-Fi, and a 9,800 mAh battery are all in its feature list. And we know that is should be out in the second quarter of this year. But until now, we didn't know anything about the price.

Enter German website Tablet Test, which has listed a price of €549 for the entry-level 16 GB version of the device and €749 for the 64 GB model. In American currency, that works out to around $719 and $981, respectively. These are admittedly a bit steep, but the power that comes packed in these monstrous devices is worth it. The question is whether or not they'll sell.

Obviously these are not official prices. Acer hasn't confirmed pricing in any territory yet. To that end, it also hasn't confirmed a release date. However, the company has slated a vague second quarter time frame. The A700 is perhaps Acer's biggest push into the tablet market to date, and there are many eyes wondering how it will fare.
