Acer Announces London 2012 Olympic Games Edition of the Iconia Tab A510

With the London 2012 Olympic Games coming up fast, it’s imperative that you gather every piece of memorabilia possible, including Olympic Games branded gadgets. Acer is only too happy to oblige, offering an Olympic Games Edition of its new Android-based Iconia Tab A510.

The regular version of Acer’s new tablet appeared in January at the Consumer Electronics Show, but now Acer has unveiled a limited edition version which is officially tied in with the Olympic Games. Hardware-wise, this model is identical to the standard A510. The only difference being the Olympic rings logo, which is now imprinted on the back of the device. Acer hasn’t mentioned any pre-loaded Olympic-themed wallpapers, videos or games, though the likelihood of such a thing is pretty high.

The tablet will be available in both black and silver, and will sport Nvidia’s speedy Quad-Core Tegra 3 processor, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), a 10.1-inch touchscreen display, 16GB of internal storage, a 5-Megapixel camera on the back and a 1-Megapixel front camera for video calls. Where the Iconia Tab 510 shines is its battery life; a whopping 9800mAh battery will provide up to 15 hours of HD video playback, so says Acer. HD video playback is pretty taxing on the battery, so general use will probably see you closer to the 20 hour mark, which is very impressive.

Acer has pre-loaded the tablet with a host of apps, including its own Acer Print for easy wireless printing, and Polaris Office for creating and editing documents, spreadsheets and more on the move using your tablet.

The Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Games Edition will go on sale later this month, although a price tag hasn’t yet been finalised. Acer says the tablet is just one product in a new series of Olympic Games-branded products that will come out over the next few months.

Acer isn’t the only company cashing in on the hype surrounding the Olympic Games – Panasonic announced new cameras, camcorders, headphones and more, specifically for the games, a while back.
