TechSpot: Acer Iconia Tab A700 Review

The Iconia Tab A700 is Acer's latest update to its Android tablet line-up. Featuring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a quad-core processor, the A700's claim to fame is its new 1920 x 1200 pixel, full HD display.

The Acer Iconia Tab A700 should look familiar to anyone who has seen or used a 10-inch Android tablet before. The standard slate design measures 259mm x 175.2mm x 10.9in (10.2in x 6.9in x 0.43in) and weighs 1.47lbs. The tablet's dimensions and 16:10 aspect ratio display lend it much more to use in landscape orientation than in portrait -- something that is frequently said about 10-inch Android tablets.

The A700's 1920 x 1200 pixel display easily qualifies as full HD, offering a pixel density of 224PPI. While not quite as high as the Apple iPad's 264PPI, the A700's resolution is plenty dense enough for my eyes and it is a struggle to see any individual pixels. Needless to say, it's a considerable step up from the 1280 x 800 pixel displays Acer used on the A500 and A510.

Many thanks for the review!! I've had my eye on this tab since the start of the year. Mainly for quad core and high res screen. I've since gotten the iPad 3, so the res isn't that impressive. And due to the poor performance of the tegra 3 CPU. Under clocking. And small amount of ram it's one tab to avoid. Seams like U need a quad core to run android well at 1280x800 and an oct core to run it at higher res. perhaps the tegra 4 or 5 with 2gb ram. :-(

Honestly in the dimensions can you just put 25cm for the corner to corner size outside of the brackets?!?! Why is it that people can use Megapixels and Gigabytes, but when it comes to length metric is so hard?!?!?! Its actually very simple.
