Acer and AT&T have just announced the Iconia A501 with AT&T 4G connectivity and Android Honeycomb.
The 10.1-inch slate originally debuted in May with Wi-Fi only compatibility, though this version will support AT&T’s HSPA+ network. The Android Honeycomb-based Iconia A501 will weigh in at 1.69 pounds and will sport a 1280 x 800 TFT WXGA display. The tablet will also feature a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. Like its Wi-Fi only counterpart, the Iconia A501 will pack a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra processor, GeForce GPU and 1GB of RAM. The tablet will feature a microSD card slot, a microHDMI out, USB 2.0 and a microUSB port.
From our time with the Wi-Fi variant, the Iconia A500 was already exceptionally fast and functional, though a bit bulky. While the tablet did no support Flash out of the box, it did handle the program well once downloaded through the Android Market.
The Acer Iconia A501 with AT&T HSPA+ will go on sale Sunday, Sept. 18, with the 16GB model costing $499.99 and the 32GB version retailing for $549.99.
