Acer Iconia A700 and 701 Tablets Pack Quad-Cores and Better Than Full HD Screens

We’ve had the run of dual-core processor packing trendiness and now it looks like 2012 will see an abundance of quad-core lovelies – there’s already rumours of a HTC phone being quad-powered but tablets are going to be the hottest property for sure, and Acer have a beauty!

The Acer Iconia A701 is set to bug the heck out of the sweet Asus Transformer Prime looking at the details spotted amongst the Acer website’s XML profile.

The Acer Iconia A700 and A701 (the 701 has 3G and the 700 is Wi-Fi only) will be equipped with the potent Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU. The quad-core chip squirts everything around thrice quicker that the dual-core Tegra 2 whilst, at the same time, manages 61% better battery efficiency. Now, that’s just showing off really isn’t it?

It’s all well and good having a meaty engine but what about the bits you’re going to be looking at? Well, the A700 has a screen that’s better than Full HD! We all know Full HD or 1080p is a resolution of 1920 x 1080, right? The Acer Iconia A700 has bragging rights of a 1920 x 1200 display! Wollop!

Let’s just assume that the tablet will have the standard 10.1-inch display – that means, for you pixel density fans, you’d be getting 224 ppi. That’s what you get on Sammy’s Galaxy S 2 which everyone loves – also there is no other tablet that can match that at the moment!

I can’t wait to have a play with the Acer Iconia A700/7001 as it will undoubtedly appear next year packing the latest Google OS – Android Ice Cream Sandwich as well as looking pretty sweet if it matches the A500 in the pic in the attractiveness stakes 🙂

What do you reckon?
