Acer Iconia Tab A501 4G Tablet

Acer announced the Iconia Tab A501 10.1-inch tablet with AT&T 4G mobile broadband and Android (3.0) Honeycomb. Powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile 1GHz dual-core processor and integrated GeForce GPU, customers can enjoy high-definition video, speedy browsing, multi-tasking, digital media playback and flash-based sites, games and applications.

The Acer Iconia Tab A501's elegant aesthetics tout a high-gloss finish with an appealing engraved pattern for a flash of style. The Alpine Silver brushed metal aluminum chassis is comfortable to hold and carry. It's also very portable. The thin and light aluminum design weighs just 1.69 pounds and measures only 10.24(w) x 6.97(d) x 0.52(h)-inches, so it fits nicely in a hand bag, briefcase or backpack.

Designed for HD entertainment, the 10.1-inch capacitive touch-screen tablet is undeniably accurate and responsive. Its high-resolution 1280×800 TFT WXGA display provides an optimal 80-degree wide viewing angle and the high-color contrast allows customers to enjoy brilliant HD video in 16:10 aspect ratio. The ample 10.1-inch size is perfect for movies, games, social networking and scrolling through photos.

Dolby Mobile technology with heightened audio makes the tablet a convenient medium for listening to online music when connected to a pair of external portable speakers. Via its HDMI port, customers can also use the Acer Iconia Tab A501 to display full high-definition video on a high-definition big screen TV or monitor. The system offers a full size USB 2.0 port for hooking up peripherals and it also includes a Micro SDHC slot and micro USB port.

Two integrated easy-to-use cameras include a 5-megapixel rear-facing model with flash and auto-focus for capturing detailed, high-quality video and images. The 2-megapixel fixed-focused front-facing webcam enables video conferencing over wi-fi and records HD video and comments for capturing memories, which can be shared via social networking sites.
