Acer made quite a splash at CES earlier this year giving the world a first glimpse of its impressive line-up of Android tablets. This week the company is back in the headlines at the Mobile World Congress showing off more of its tablet devices and sharing additional details in the lead-up to launch. Officially christened Acer Iconia, the series includes a few size, spec, and software variations, but the model that catches our eye in particular is the Iconia A100.

Coming in with a 7-inch screen, the Iconia A100 hits the ground running with a high-res 1024×600 capacitive touch screen and a powerful nVidia Tegra 2 SoC powering Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The rest of the spec sheet keeps up the momentum with 512MB RAM, 8GB flash storage, WiFi, 3G, and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, rear-facing 5MP camera and 2MP webcam, 1080p full HD video playback with HDMI-out, and support for Flash 10.1. Due to be available in April, the A100 unfortunately still doesn't have a price.

As one of the few known 7-inch tablets packing both Tegra 2 processing power and Android Honeycomb, the Acer Iconia A100 makes a very strong case for itself, bringing the potent hardware/software combination more commonly seen in larger tablets down a size division. It is certainly one to watch and look forward to when it launches in the next few months.

  • I don’t get it, 7″ tablets are NOT pocketable, so why are they being covered on this site?

  • My 7″ Galaxy Tab fits into my jacket pockets and my jeans pocket, though for the latter I have to take the case off.

    Just because you aren’t personally interested in 7″ devices doesn’t mean that nobody else is.

    You must be new here. 7″ has been the cut-off for years. The site name is figurative, tho 7″ devices do fit in some pockets. I carry my Tab in my coat pocket every day.

    Wow that is sexy. Love the design. Now that’s the kind of hardware we need to see more of. You know me I searched for the phone icon and alas it is not to be found. Would love an update on the Huawei S7 Slim and the S7 Pro. That reminds me, I haven’t seen an update for Viliv at MWC.

    Looks great! Only questions from me are the battery life and weight. Hopefully Acer will retain Acer-like prices.

    Throw a WACOM digitizer on there, give it a silo for the stylus and cover it with a high resolution Pixel Qi screen and I’m in.
