Late last year, Acer showed off an intriguing dual-screen notebook design called the Iconia. The Iconia features dual 14.1″ displays, Core i5 processors, and weighs 6.18-pounds with a 4-cell battery.
Acer is now adding to the Iconia product family with the new Iconia Tab A500. The Iconia Tab A500 will use an unknown version of Google’e Android operating system (but we’re betting on Honeycomb). However, this won’t be a stock Android experience — Acer UI 4.5 will be layered on top of the standard Android install.
“Innovation is in our DNA,” said Acer VP Campbell Kan. “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.”
The half-inch-thick tablet will have a 10.1″ capacitive touch screen, dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra s processor, and an HDMI port. In addition, the Iconia Tab A500 will incorporate Verizon LTE mobile broadband support — Verizon’s LTE network launched in the closing weeks of 2010.
We don’t have any pictures of the device yet, but we’ll get you some this week as we head to the CES show floor.
