Next ICONIA TAB from Acer to sport 1080p HD display, quad-core processor
By Dan Seifert on Sunday January 08, 2012

Acer held a press conference to kick of the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show this afternoon, and after showing a bevy of ultrabook notebooks, the company revealed what its next-generation ICONIA TAB tablet will bring. Acer says that the successor to today's ICONIA TAB devices will feature a 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixel) display and will be powered by a quad-core processor. Unfortunately, we don't have any other details about the new tablet or any official images of it, but it's safe to say that it will likely run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when it is officially launched. We would also guess that the quad-core processor inside of it is the NVIDIA Tegra 3 used in the ASUS Transformer Prime, but Acer could also use a Qualcomm processor, so we will just have to wait to find out more about it. We will bring you more information on what Acer is debuting at CES as we get it.
