Acer Iconia A500 Tablet PC: Runs On Android OS – LTE Capable

CES 2011’s domination by tablet PCs continues with Acer’s Iconia tab A500, except this is a tablet PC with a difference. It runs on Android (not specified which version) and it is going to be capable of making use of the Verizon LTE network.

It’s not the first time that we have heard about the new tablet PC, back in November, OSM’s Maddy Rowe reported on it as well as a smaller version, which we haven’t heard any further details about yet. The Acer tablet PC has its own custom 4.5 UI smeared over the top of the Android OS, it has a 10.1” screen with a 10 point multi-touch screen. When using the tablet, you can use 1080p videoing via the HDMI port. It also has the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor with a gyroscope; Engadget’s Paul Miller says that it positions itself perfectly for gaming.

Thus far, we have no idea of pricing or the actual screen resolution as Acer has done a pretty good job of keeping the device under wraps, however we are hoping to find out more about the device over the course of CES 2011.
