Just as quickly as Acer entered into the dual-core tablet market with the most affordable fully-featured tablet at the time, it now enters the quad-core market in the same fashion. The Tegra 3-sporting Iconia Tab A510 will be the first real competition to the beastly Transformer Prime in the Android tablet realm, and rightfully so -- it's packing comparable specs while still managing to hit a lower price-point.

  • 10.1-inch 1,280x800 display
  • Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage with microSD Card slot
  • 5MP Rear shooter, 1MP front-facing camera
  • 9,800mAh battery for 12 hours of continuous video playback
  • Android 4.0 with Acer Ring

The A510 not only packs some of the latest hardware to hit the scene, along with the newest version of Android, but it also offers up Acer's Ring interface - a customizable launcher that allows for quick access to user-defined shortcuts and bookmarks, as well as a handy screenshot tool.

You may not think of Fashion Week as the best place to announce a new phone, but Acer sure does. The company just showed off its CloudMobile phone—not to be confused with its AcerCloud service—in Milan. Packing a 4.3", 720p display, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, NFC and Ice Cream Sandwich, the device actually doesn't look too bad on paper.

Unfortunately, "on paper" is the most reliable information we can get right now.

Acer just revealed their newest budget smartphone, and unfortunately details are pretty light at the moment. What they have told us: it's going to ship with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), a 3.7" screen, 5MP rear shooter with LED flash, and NFC support. As you can see below, it will also ship in 3 colors: Sakura Pink, Alpine White, and Cat's-eye Black. Oh, and "the onscreen display style varies with the external color, making each smartphone a unique fashion statement."

No word on further hardware specs or when/where the phone will launch, but the phone will be displayed at the Acer Pod in the Google Android Booth at MWC - presumably they'll be sharing more details there.

Acer tablet owners across the country were elated (well, most of them were, anyway) when Acer announced that Ice Cream Sandwich will be coming to the A100 and A500 in April. Thanks to a new leak that made its way to XDA, though, the wait for April just got a lot shorter. Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs for both devices landed in their respective forum on XDA earlier today, bringing a taste of Android 4.0 to the duo.

Over the weekend, Acer started pushing the Android 4.0 update to the Iconia Tab A200. Yesterday, Acer ANZ announced that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Iconia Tab A500 would be rolling out in April in Australia and New Zealand. Today, in an attempt to roll a turkey, Acer America followed suit and announced the ICS update for not only the A500, but the A100 along with it:

Acer ANZ just announced a distant April timeline for the Ice Cream Sandwich update to float all the way to Australia and New Zealand. Unfortunately, this doesn't tell us anything about the rest of the world, but unless they're delivering it by pigeon mail, I see it as a pretty good indicator of when it will hit the States, Europe, and other continents as well. Unfortunately,

Great news, everyone! We’ve just got confirmation from HQ that the Iconia Tab A500 will be getting Ice Cream Sandwich in April.

Acer Iconia Tab A200 solo

It looks like owners of Acer's Iconia Tab A200 have something to celebrate today, as reports of an update (to Android 4.0.3) began rolling in early this morning. The update brings the A200's build number up to Acer_AV041_A200_1.037.00_PA_CUS1.

If the update hasn't hit your A200 just yet, you can check manually using the ever-familiar process: just go to Settings > About tablet > System update > Check now. It's worth mentioning that this build is different from the version that leaked several days ago (1.019.00), but there's no word yet on exactly what the differences are.

Thanks, Charlie Collin!

We arrived at CES earlier today, and Acer's pre-CES event was the first item on our agenda (yes, on a Sunday). The company unveiled a number of ultrabooks. a new cloud service, and briefly mentioned that it was bringing a brand-new Android tablet to market later this year - so briefly that we didn't even hear the name of the device mentioned (obviously, we later found out what it was called).
