Acer Iconia Tab A500 UK release date: April

Acer Iconia Tab A500 - out in April

Acer has unveiled the Acer Iconia Tablet A500 at Mobile World Congress 2011.

The Android tablet packs in a big 10.1-inch screen, Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system and a dual-core Nvidia Tegra2 chip.

Depending on your thoughts on overlays, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 will be coming into the market with an Acer user interface so it won't be pure Honeycomb like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

"Complete with a built-in HDMI port and 1080p output, it may also be used to enjoy HD content in full HD on a big screen TV or monitor."
