Quad-Core Acer Iconia A700 Tablet Ready for CES

Acer's new high-end Iconia Tab A700 has been pictured, offering a quad-core processor and incredibly high-resolution 1920 x 1200 screen in a super-skinny case.

According to Russian site NoMobile, which had a play with both this and the lower-spec A200, the A700 is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, which would put it on a par with the very exciting Eee Pad Transformer Prime. The tablet weighs a mere 650g, has a 5megapixel camera with LED flash and an HD front-facing secondary chat cam, plus there's currently a huge 9800mAh battery inside, giving it a claimed video playback uptime of 10 hours.

Acer would prefer it if we got excited about its forthcoming A200 Android tablet, but that'll be based around the usual Tegra 2 chipset. No one's going to be excited about Tegra 2 in 2012. [NoMobile via Techradar]
