With its CES 2012 press conference coming to a close, Acer quickly announced its next-generation Iconia Tab, only revealing limited details before taking the tablet offstage.
So what will this mystery slate include? While Acer’s Campbell Kan held the tablet, he swiftly revealed that the tablet would sport a 1080p display, along with a quad-core processor. Yet, before most audience members could blink, the tablet was gone, with Kan asking, “isn’t it cool?”
Perhaps this device isn’t so mysterious after all, as an Acer tab sporting a similar screen resolution and a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core chipset surfaced in December in the form of the Iconia Tab A700. If the tablets are the same, then we are looking at a March release, according to previous reports. The Iconia A700 is said to feature a 10.1-inch display, 5MP camera, microUSB port, microHDMI out and SIM.
Though it is too soon to be certain, we will be sure to cover the story as it develops.
