Acer Gateway Android tablet spotted, it’s just a rebranded Iconia A500

Gateway, a US-based subsidiary of Acer (since 2007), will launch an Android tablet, too.

The tablet has two model numbers – TP-A60W and PT-A60G – and we’ve discovered it listed at the official Bluetooth website (here and here).

At first I thought it’s a brand new device, but after a bit of research I’ve found that this is just a black, Gateway-branded Acer Iconia Tab A500 (it’s worth mentioning that the A500 also has a Packard Bell-branded version).

The back of the Gateway tablet certainly looks like the back of the A500 (although they have different colors), and even their descriptions are similar: “Lightweight and smaller than a magazine, it is very easy to carry.”

This being said, we assume the tablet features a 10.1 inch display, Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (here’s its Wi-Fi certificate), 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor – just like the A500.

For the moment, we have no idea when, where, and for how much the Gateway TP-A60W / PT-A60G will be launched.
