Acer teases 1080p quadcore Iconia Tab A700

Acer may have spent most of its time talking ultrabooks at CES 2012 today, but the company also had a quick surprise for tablet fans: a new quadcore slate to take on ASUS' Transformer Prime. Briefly flashed before the assembled press - just giving us time to shoot off a picture - and then whisked away once more, the unnamed Iconia Tab, which we're guessing is the rumored A700, apparently has not only four cores but a Full HD 1080p display.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 continues Android ICS drive with NVIDIA Tegra 3

There's a whole mess of tablets coming in 2012, and if what Acer is presenting already in leaked photos is any indication, their Iconia Tab A700 10-inch tablet is just one tip of the iceberg, with it's NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and Ice Cream Sandwich putting it in the running for world's greatest aside the ASUS Transformer Prime. There's no way to gauge if this machine will stand up the tests its predecessors the A500, A501, and A100 were subject to, but by the looks of it, Acer's certainly stayed the course with design sensibilities on the outside. Look for this device to appear at CES 2012 aside its A200 brethren without a doubt.

Qualcomm: Tegra 3 is a “single use product”

Qualcomm: Tegra 3 is a “single use product”

Qualcomm is pushing to make its Snapdragon mobile chipset brand more visible in the consumer marketplace, dismissing the threat of NVIDIA's Tegra 3 as a "single use product" and even temporarily rebranding the Qualcomm Stadium as the "Snapdragon Stadium" from this weekend. Speaking at a pre-CES briefing today, Qualcomm's Senior Vice President of Software Strategy Rob Chandhok suggested that, while Tegra 2 may have been found in many of the headline-grabbing tablets and phones over the past twelve months, "in the mobile space, I'm not sure that NVIDIA has any more brand awareness than we do." The company is similarly unconcerned about the quadcore Tegra 3.

ASUS Transformer Prime hands-on with games Bladeslinger, Glowball, Chidori

ASUS Transformer Prime hands-on with games Bladeslinger, Glowball, Chidori

What you're about to witness is a set of three hands-on videos of a few games that were included on the ASUS Transformer Prime Android tablet when it came to your humble narrator's doorstep last week for review. While none of these three games will be on your tablet when you first pull it out of the box later this month, you'll be able to purchase them eventually, be it the moment you hit the Android Market or sometime early next year when the game is finished. First we've got a platform demo by Chidori in a fighting game, then the already classic Glowball real-time generated 3D environment game, and Bladeslinger - 3rd person battle in the old west with monsters galore.

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

There's so very much to say about a couple of devices when you're comparing them, especially two titans like the iPad 2 and the Asus Transformer Prime, but what we're going to do here is get down to some basics - namely some benchmark tests that work just as well on both iOS and Android - so that we can have a clear view of how the two work in relation to one another. We've got a few tests lined up here, first of all SunSpider, an internet browser-based JavaScript benchmark which tests how well your internet is going to work based on the machine more than your connection. Next there's Rightware's BrowserMark, another test that sits in the internet browser. Finally there's GLBenchmark 2.1 which is one of the only apps that works on both iOS and Android outside of the browser, and frames per second across the screen is what it works with.

No Transformer Prime 3G/UMTS version says ASUS Germany

No Transformer Prime 3G/UMTS version says ASUS Germany

While the ASUS Transformer Prime has finally hit the SlashGear test bench and - in a few days time - store shelves, for some the package won't be complete until a 3G version of the Tegra 3 tablet is available; unfortunately, that's looking increasingly unlikely. Despite suggestions last month that ASUS would consider a 3G Transformer Prime if the market demanded it, the company's German division has thrown cold water over the prospect, claiming the minimal demand for UMTS 3G models means they're not going to be produced.

Transformer Prime available 12/19 says ASUS

In addition to our first hands-on post and introduction to our review series on the ASUS Transformer Prime, we've got official word from the manufacturer on availability of the device in stores. While recent unconfirmed reports had the tablet coming out early in December, we've now got confirmation coming straight from ASUS that shipments should line up with the start of the week of 12/19/2011, this setting the release about one week later than the incorrect accounts. Furthermore, the first firmware over the air update is set to be released on the second of December, this putting it in plenty of time to be popping up on new Prime owners screens right out of the box.

Context, not Cores, is the Tablet Industry’s Challenge

Context, not Cores, is the Tablet Industry’s Challenge

Samsung showed off what makes it special this morning, with the new Exynos 5250 mobile chipset getting official ahead of its debut in next-gen smartphones and tablets next year. A 2GHz dual-core - with what Samsung reckons is twice the overall grunt of the company's current 1.5GHz dual-cores and four times the 3D graphics prowess - the Exynos 5250 is also interesting because, unlike NVIDIA, Samsung has opted for a pair of ARM Cortex A15 cores, rather than four A9 cores as in the Tegra 3. That's going to raise plenty of questions about comparative performance, heat output and power frugality, but perhaps most importantly - in the marketplace, at least - it's going to prompt an interesting marketing challenge for every company pushing a tablet or phone.
