Back in November Acer introduced us to the Iconia, its dual-screen tablet/notebook device. However, the event had plenty more in the way of tablets and Acer said it was committed to offering a full-fledged tablet line in 2011.
Well, here's part of that commitment. Officially unveiled at CES La Vegas, you’re looking at the single screen version of the Acer Iconia. Dubbed the Iconia Tab A500, the device packs a 10.1-inch "10 point multitouch" display, Nvidia’s dual core Tegra 2 chipset (1.06GHz), HDMI, support for Flash 10.1, 3G and Verizon's fourth generation LTE network (launched last month).
Though Acer didn’t go into details about the OS, the company did reveal that it will be running "the latest highly intuitive Android OS," which likely means they’re waiting on Honeycomb, or at least Gingerbread, to hit the mainstream before announcing any more details. Unfortunately those of you who relish the pure, untouched Android experienced will be disappointed to hear that Acer is also including its own UI (Acer UI 4.5) so users can "reach a whole new level of interactivity." We're sure they'll appreciate that.
We’ll try and get a peek at the device down at Acer’s booth once the show opens tomorrow morning. Until then, feast your eyes on the mystery 10-incher Acer revealed, but didn't say much about, last November. Is that you, Iconia Tab?
