Acer's Long Awaited Tablet Finally Releases!

The Acer Iconia Tab A700 was finally released today featuring a quad core Tegra 3 clocked at 1.3GHz and 1 GB of RAM. With a rear 5MP camera and a 1MP front facing. The rear camera capable of taking 1080p video in MP4. Plus it contains 32GB for storage of course expandable via MicroSD. This system is the same Acer Iconia Tab A510 but with one major difference. The Screen. Yup the people at Acer were able to cram in a 10.1" 1920x1200 screen translating it to 224 ppi. Making it one of the highest resolution Android tablets out there. Only about 40 ppi away from the New iPad, so you can be sure to see everything crisp and clear. And it only costs $449. Though build quality may be questionable as it was on the Acer Iconia Tab A500 because it was so cheap, but you do get what you're paying for. Plus battery life may be affected due to all those pixels the tablet is pushing. The tablet is rated at 10.5 hours of battery life. Plus benchmarks wont be that impressive since the SoC will be spending most of its time displaying all those pixels. Then again for 50 more dollars you get access to Apple's huge ecosystem and and that high resolution display, but you're sacrificing Android's freedom for that. Still its one Android tablet that sticks out just like the Asus Transformer Prime did with its stunning IPS display and thin body. Then again you could wait for the Asus Transformer Prime Infinity...
