Back in the month of May Acer had announced the launch of its tablet devices based on both Android and Windows platforms in India. Now Acer is all set to revamp its tablet range with the launch of a new Android device in the Indian market.
An Acer India spokesperson confirmed to The Mobile Indian that the company is set to launch a new tablet — Acer Iconia Tab A501 this September in India.
The Tab A501 will be an upgrade to the existing A500. It will have 3G and cellular data connectivity, which was not available in the earlier Acer Iconia Tab A500.
Iconia A501 is identical to A500 in terms of technical specifications. It runs on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 dual core processor clocked at 1 GHz with a 1 GB DDR2 RAM. The A501 will be available in two different memory sizes of 16 GB and 32 GB. The tablet will have a 5 megapixel rear camera for video and imagery while its frontal 2 megapixel camera will be for video conferencing.
The 10.1 inch display of the A501 will be capable of the same 800 x 1280 pixel resolution as its predecessor, but it might also include the new ten point multi touch input technology which was included by Acer in the LTE version of the Iconia Tab launched sometime back.
There is a huge possibility that the A501 might come preinstalled with Android Honeycomb 3.2. Otherwise, users can upgrade the tablet to Honeycomb 3.2.
The 3G enabled tablet will cost the users somewhere between Rs 27,000 to Rs 30,000 for the 16 GB version.
