Acer is ready to get official with the Iconia Tab A700, which was previously shown at CES 2012. The tablet has a 10-inch screen, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
One of the more interesting features of the tablet is that the 10-inch screen has full HD resolution of 1920 x 1200. Acer promises that the battery is good for 10.5 hours of video playback and that the tablet should will high-quality sound with Dolby Mobile 3 and support for 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound via HDMI out.
"Consumers have embraced their tablets as a mobile hub for their daily lives, and the full HD display on the Acer A700 will give customers a fresh new perspective on the apps, games and digital media they enjoy," said Paul Tayar, director of product marketing for connected devices, Acer America. "Customers looking for a no-compromise tablet will get the features and performance they want in the new Acer A700."
The Iconia Tab A700 also has expandable storage thanks to a microSD card slot and it also has a micro-USB port. As of today, the tablet is up for pre-order in the United States and Canada with a 32 GB version of the tablet selling for $449.99.

ditto! The biggest things I have against iPad are, in no particular order:
1) no usb
2) no hdmi (can convert the tablet as a HTPC to play movies off of network over hdmi)
4) no microSD/SD
5) expensive - $450 vs $599 for 32GB. Also to me this is a toy to make certain aspects of computing life portable and so top-quality parts are just an added bonus, not a necessity. Hence price takes precedence over quality, at least not to the point where the quality if pathetic.

Well said, I was logging in to chime in but you said it for me. iPads are great devices but it's lacking things that I'd like to have. Just the lack of expandable memory is a dealbreaker for me. For people that don't miss those features, get an iPad. The rest will keep looking.
