Acer has taken the wraps off of the Iconia Tab A510, its latest Android tablet. The Iconia Tab A510 is the first tablet from Acer to use the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

The Iconia Tab A510 doesn't look terribly different from the Tegra 2-powered A500 released by Acer last year, with its 10.1-inch, WXGA (1280 x 800 pixel) display and front and rear cameras (1 megapixel in the front, 5 megapixel in the back). Under the hood is where Acer has made some improvements, as the new Tegra 3 quad-core processor should provide much better performance than the older Tegra 2 chip. The new processor is paired with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

Acer claims that the A510 will last up to 13 hours between charges thanks to its very large 9,800mAh battery and the power saving features found in the Tegra 3. The tablet packs ports for micro-HDMI, micro-USB, and microSD storage expansion with support for cards up to 32GB in size. It measures 265.5mm x 175mm x 10.9mm (10.1in x 6.9in x 0.43in) and weighs 680.4g (24oz).

The Iconia A510 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features Acer's custom interface with a ring-shaped pop-up app launcher. It is available for pre-order now for $449.99. [via PC Mag]
