Acer’s Iconia Tab A700  includes a 1920-by-1200-resolution display and 32GB of storage, and a $450 price tag.  The Iconia Tab A700 goes on presale today, and will be shipping later this month at retail and directly from Acer; it will be available either in black or silver.  It’s high-res screen compares well to the current 1280 x 800 seen on many tablets today, but since Apple introduced its third-generation iPad with a 2048-by-1536-pixel display—264 pixels per inch—the android tablet makers still have a way to go.

Acer is definitely targeting the new iPad, it’s price undercuts Apple by offering 32GB of storage built in. That’s double the capacity of the baseline Apple 16GB iPad, and Acer does this at a price that’s $50 less than that 16GB iPad, and $150 less than a 32GB iPad.  And of course, the iPad doesn’t have the expandability of a microsd card slot, as the Acer does.  Combined with a Tegra3 processor and 1GB ram, Ice Cream Sandwich should run well on the device.  Throw in a micro-HDMI port, with 5.1 Dolby, GPS, Bluetooth, a rear 5Mp and front 1Mp camera, and it’s a good package for the price.  The battery is 9800 mAH, which would seem large, but how much the new display will eat up capacity remains to be seen.  Also, Acer bundles Polaris Office 3.5 to read and edit documents, and preinstalls Evernote and its own Acer Print app and Acer Ring navigation interface, all in the name of getting you a head start on productivity.
