Acer Iconia Tab A700 with Ice Cream Sandwich slated for launch at CES 2012

We expect tablets at CES 2012 and a new report from NoMobile says Acer will be bringing some Ice Cream Sandwich goodness in the form of a new tablet. Be on the look out for the Iconia Tab A700, which will serve as a big brother to the A200, which has already been unveiled.

The A700 will accordingly sport a 10.1-inch display with a very high resolution of 1920 x 1200. It will also have a new NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, a quad-core powerhouse with the potential to clock at up to 1.3 GHz each. The 9800 mAh battery is said to offer 10 hours of video playback, which could equal even more hours of web surfing or audio playback. As far as dimensions go, the A700 measures just 9.8 mm thick and weighs approximately 1.43 lbs, or 650 grams.

The Acer Iconia Tab A200 just went on sale in the UK this past week for £299 or around $462, therefore expect the price of the A700 to be north of $500.  The A200 is slightly thicker at 12.4 mm and obviously has less impressive specs, though still impressive. It has the standard NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor inside and the same 10.1-inch display, but with a lower 1280×800 resolution. It doesn’t ship with Ice Cream Sandwich, but Acer has an upgrade planned for later this year.

Look for the A700 and many — seriously, many — more tablets to debut at CES 2012 starting January 10th.
