The spec war is in full effect, everyone wants to out do the competitors, and create something with much better specs than their last piece of hardware, and Acer is not one to be left out of this. The usual user agent files have it that their up and coming A700 and A701 Iconia Tabs will feature a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, along with a Full HD display with a resolution of 1920x1200. Amazing screen, crazy processor paired up with some Ice Cream Sandwich goodness at some point, what more could we ask for?

Acer Iconia Tab A700 & A701 to feature 1920x1200 displays and a quad-core Tegra 3 processors?


Damn. Give me a good DAW program to record my music and I'll never need a PC/laptop again. Microsoft is sooooo screwed.

Been waiting for an HD screen on tablets for a while...was hoping for it by the end of the year.

So the big question is WHEN??? :-)

The full size USB port on my Acer has easily been worth $50. I can plug in any old keyboard I happen to have lying around, thumb drives, and even external hard drives. I can't imagine giving it up.

I hope they retain this feature in the A700, and fix the goddamed microphone volume.

HD on tablets will surely have its place one day, but right now it hardly seems to be a reasonable priority. My laptop doesn't have as many pixels on a 15'' screen, yet I find it quite usable. Resolution independence is ultimately nice to have, but I wouldn't mind getting there more gradually in a few years. Battery life, responsiveness of the UI, security and service integration are far more important than some ill-conceived specs war.

When connecting a tablet to a large screen, like a monitor or TV, mirroring the display makes sense. Therefore, 1080p resolution makes sense.

On my Transformer, I can plug in a PS3 controller and it works. Now plug that HDMI cable into my big flatscreen and I have a very nice gaming rig. By all means lets pump that up to full 1080p!

The applications are as endless as you want to make them, and in this case, more is better.
