MWC 2011: Acer Iconia A500 Tab tablet hands-on preview video

MWC 2011, Previews, Tablet, Tech Digest news

Acer’s main tablet on show at MWC 2011 is the Iconia A500 Tab, a 10.1 inch slate which will launch in the Spring with the Android Honeycomb OS (not the OS present in this video’s demo model).

A dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 250 Cortex 19 processor runs the show, capable of full HD playback on the 1280 x 800 screen. A HDMI port lets you output video to a big screen TV, while a 5MP camera sits on the rear and a 2 MP camera for video calling lives on the front. Like many of Acer’s devices, it’ll feature the syncing and sharing system, allowing you to send files quickly and wirelessly between other compatible devices.

We go hands-on in this video, and get slightly baffled by the tablet’s gesture-based bezel controls.
