Acer Iconia Tab A500 is one of Verizon’s first 4G Android tablets

Apart from readying the launch of new 4G smartphones (like the HTC Thunderbolt, LG Revolution and Samsung i520), Verizon is also preparing for unveiling its first 4G LTE tablets.

One of them has just been announced by Acer – it’s called Acer Iconia Tab A500 and runs the “latest highly intuitive Android OS”, which I assume is Honeycomb.

Like two of Asus’ new Android tablets, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 has a 10 inch multi-touch capacitive display and is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor.
The device is only 13.3mm thick and features HDMI-out.

There are no photos of the Iconia Tab A500 available just yet, but we’ll likely see the tablet tomorrow at CES 2011 – when the Motorola Xoom will also be announced.

“We are proud to once again offer users the most advanced technologies. With the ICONIA Tab A500 supporting 4G LTE, users will be able to wirelessly navigate, download or stream as seamlessly as they do with a wired connection. This is indeed another step toward a truly mobile Internet experience,” declared Campbell Kan, vice president of Acer’s Smart Handheld division.
