Acer Iconia A501The previously-revealed Acer Iconia tablet is getting a 4G boost thanks to AT&T, the wireless carrier announced at CTIA this week.

The Iconia A500 — which we got to spend some time with at PAX East earlier this month — will emerge as the A501 when it is on the AT&T network. The A501 will have the same specs as the currently unreleased A500, powered by an Nvidia Tegra 250 1 GHz dual-core processor while sporting a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a “high definition” front-facing camera for video chat.

The Iconia A501 will sport a 10.1-inch display and will run Google Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb), complete with full access to the Android Market. It will also feature Flash 10.1 support, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and an HDMI port for 1080p video out.

Pricing information for the 4G tablet is currently unknown. It is, however, expected to launch in the second quarter, at which point AT&T said that specific distribution at pricing will be announced.
