This device, unannounced by the company but evidenced by a pair of User Agent Profile specifications posted on its official site, will match the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime in the major specs: a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1280 x 800 resolution, and Android as the OS. Beyond that, we also know it'll feature Bluetooth 2.0 and that the Wi-Fi model will carry the A510 name, an obvious successor to the Iconia Tab A500, with its 3G variant being dubbed A511.

The chipmaker is obviously interested in showing off the power of the quad-core Tegra 3 processor inside, clocked at 1.3GHz. In that regard, Ice Cream Sandwich seemed to run quite smoothly and a couple games we tried performed well.

We should be looking at a 1280 x 800 screen instead of the A700's 1920 x 1200, so the A510 is clearly coming in at the mid to low end of Acer's tablet lineup.

On the software side, we are fairly close to a stock version of Android 4.0.1. Acer's main contribution is a center button in the middle of the bottom bar, which launched a circular toolbar with access to bookmarks, volume, search, screenshot functionality, and a few shortcuts. With any luck, that relatively minor customization will mean that Acer will be able to keep the tablet up to date as future Android versions are released.
