The first-ever tablets that we came across which tooled quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processors and had Ice Cream Sandwich installed on them right out of the box, were Acer’s Iconia Tab A510 and A700. Acer unveiled these tablets at CES but so far, hasn’t made them publicly available yet. However, Acer has now revealed plans of releasing the special Olympic Games Editions of both these tablets.
The Olympic Games are slated to take place between July 27 and Aug 12 in London this year. The special editions of A510 and A700 will feature the logos of both Acer and Olympic on their backs. The hardware specs and the overall look and feel of these special editions are nearly identical to the ones unveiled by Acer during CES, except for the addition of the Olympic logo.
Both these tablets from Acer have 10.1-inch displays and their batteries, once charged, are said to be able to last 15 hours, a feature that can definitely hook a lot of battery-life-hungry users. The main difference between A510 and A700 is that of the resolution of their screens. A510 comes with a 1280 x 800 display resolution while A700 comes with an awe-inspiring 1900 x 1200 display resolution. The latter is of course enough to knock out many of it’s contemporaries when Acer finally decides to release the two tablets.
Although Acer hasn’t revealed the pricing details of the two tablets yet, we are fairly sure that A510 will hit the shelves by the end of March while A700 will be available by June.
