There’s a new massive telephone-capable tablet in town, and it’s made by Acer. The same folks that’ve released a 10-color strong tablet of nearly the same size earlier today have also shown off the Iconia Tab 7, complete with the catchphrase "Keep in Touch." This 7-inch tablet is light, feels robust, and runs Android.
The team at Acer have begun releasing their 2014 collection of devices, starting with convertibles, desktop devices, and the all-important tablet. The Acer Iconia One 7 is a device that works with a look that’s very, very similar to recent tablets released by Acer and ASUS. If you took the name off the back, you’d easily mistake it for a Google Nexus 7.
At the CES event this year, Acer showcased some affordable tablets that included the Iconia B1-720. News is that an upgraded version will be announced shortly, and the new one is dubbed the Iconia B1-730 HD. The leaked press images showcase a tablet with a textured back panel, sporting the company logo branding on the bottom of the front panel.
The Google Nexus 7 kind of turned the tablet market on its head by offering a reasonably powerful slate for only a fraction of the cost of other tablets. Unsurprisingly, we've been hearing rumors that other manufacturers will follow Google's lead in 2013, offering their own inexpensive tablets to try to win over the budget crowd. One company rumored to be launching a wallet-friendly sometime in the future is Acer, with its Iconia Tab B1.
This week we've gotten the opportunity to take an up close and personal peek at the Acer Iconia Tab A700, an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a high definition display and the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor under the hood. This Acer device looks and feels rather similar to its predecessor, the Iconia Tab A500, but its components set it in a class all its own. This tablet has a 10.1-inch display with 1920 x 1200 pixels across it, this making it a 224ppi dense display-toting beast of a machine.
The Acer Iconia Tab A700 hasn’t been a very well kept secret, but the pricing and availability of the tablet has consistently eluded the general public. Wonder no more, as Acer has finally let slip exactly what you’ll be paying for the 32GB model of the tablet: $449.99. For your money you’ll be getting a 10-inch screen with a 1920x1200 resolution, a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Ice Cream Sandwich.
This week the already-released Acer Iconia Tab 510 has appeared at no less than Computex 2012, complete with its lovely 15-hour battery life, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. This device has a respectable 1280 x 800 pixel resolution 10.1-inch display, versions in 16 or 32GB for internal storage, and Dolby Digital Plus software and hardware that supports 5.1 channel audio via HDMI output. This device has some Olympic markings on the back and is made specifically for you to capture the 2012 games as they move forward in London - catch all the action!
With the Acer Iconia Tab A110 out on the blocks with a big upgrade to Tegra 3 with Ice Cream Sandwich, we knew there'd be a bump for the next biggest bunch: the Acer Iconia Tab A210. This device takes the Iconia Tab A200 and turns it into a much more impressive beast, complete with NVIDIA's Tegra 3 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a lovely 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Can it bust up the elder generation of Acer Android tablets with one blow?
This week we've gotten the opportunity to take a peek at the newest version of Acer's hero for the 7-inch tablet form factor in the Acer Iconia Tab A110.

This device's 7-inch display contains 1024 x 600 pixels and the whole beast has 1GB of RAM to run it.
