Acer Iconia Tab A700 is the latest model in the Iconia tablet series, but this slate has yet to get an USA launch date. However, it’s been spotted recently at the FCC courtesy of Liliputing, so the launch date can’t be far. Just like the recently upgraded Iconia Tab A510, this model relies on a quad core Tegra 3 processor.

It also runs Android 4.0 ICS preinstalled, but it brings forth an impressive 1920 x 1200 10 inch screen, that few other Android tablets can match. The Iconia Tab A700 will be available in 32 and 64 GB versions, with HDMI connectivity, a USB host port and 5 megapixel camera at the back. The battery will be a huge 9800 mAh and for now we have no idea if there will be a 3G/4G model, since the model at the FCC is WiFi-only. ASUS and Acer are racing right now to get their 1080p tablets out.

The A700 and the Transformer Pad 700 Infinity don’t have exact release dates, although “late summer” is a pretty sure guess. Anyway, the race is kind of futile, since there’s always the iPad 3, that’s already past 1080p, with its Retina Display. However, in the Android universe these two slates are unmatched yet. A700 is expected to get a premium pricing of around 549 euros. Will you get it?

    Well, this is swell and jolly. Acer Iconia A700 is a lovely tablet. But honestly, I don’t need a fullHD 10″ screen. I got rid of a 1280 pixels Prime, Tegra 3 is a slow CPU sometimes, even at 1280×800 resolution.
    Increasing resolution will only put more weight for it to move.

    It’s like you have a 100 HP engine trying to pull a 747, by adding more passengers and luggage.
    Even the “mighty” iPad 3 struggles sometimes with a 2048 pixels 3D game.

    Instead of putting faster CPU’s and making it last longer, they unbalance a product by adding a power hog screen and a 2011 year CPU.

    It’s very difficult to want a tablet now. Besides iPad3, there are no good alternatives available.

    I am waiting for Note 10.1″ and Lenovo ThinkTablet ver. 2.0, for example. I want a tablet with a pen for my kid, for learning letters and writing. Would save a lot of papers.
