Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Game Edition now available for $449.99
About a month after it started taking pre-orders for the tablet, Acer has finally made the Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Game Edition available in the US.
The price being asked is $449.99, and the tablet comes with 32 GB of built-in storage. Other specs include a quad-core 1.3 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 1 GB of RAM, microSD card support, the obvious 10.1-inch touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera, a 1 MP front-facing camera, microUSB, microHDMI, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The biggest feature of the Iconia Tab A510, Olympic Game Edition or not, is its battery. With a capacity of 9,800 mAh it’s (as far as I know) second only to the new iPad’s 11,000+ mAh unit. And unlike the new iPad, there’s no Retina Display or 4G LTE connectivity baked in here. What that means is that the Iconia Tab A510 should deliver by far the best battery life of any Android tablet on the market. So keep that in mind.
If you’re interested in picking one up, head over to Acer’s US online store. In case you’re wondering, the whole Olympic Game theme consists just of the Olympic logo slapped on the back of the tablet, and that long name. Nothing else.
