Acer has obtained a fresh FCC certification for its tablet series, Acer Iconia 10 as per some reports. According to the leaked information, the tablet is being called the B3-A40, while its predecessor was B3 A30. So, there is obviously a new tablet in the offing and having obtained the certification, the next obvious move would be to launch the device. Here are some details culled out from the leaks.
The Acer Iconia 10 is a 10.1-inch display tablet and the tablet is predicted to be sporting a quad-core MediaTek MT8167 processor. The display resolution is likely to be in full HD format; this could represent a departure from the previous Acer Iconia 10 tablet which sported a resolution much lesser than the full HD 1920x1080pixels.
The RAM will be 2GB which experts feel, along with this processor should be good enough to carry out routine activities on the tablet. The storage is likely to be either 16GB or 32GB, but the leaked images indicate a microSD slot in addition.
Some of the other provisions on the new Acer Iconia 10 that can be predicted based on the documents accessed include: a front camera, two speakers in the front, a 3.5mm jack for the headset, a micro USB slot and a secondary one for charging purposes, as well as the microSD card slot already mentioned above.
The camera at the rear is obviously part of the setup. One has to add here that most of these features and provisions were available on the previous version of the tablet also. The details of the size of the cameras is still not out, but the speculation is that the rear camera would be of 5MP and the front one, 2MP.
The battery is quite powerful at 6100mAh and that will give the users of the laptop sufficient time between charges.
For the record, the Acer Iconia 10 tablet is expected to support 5Ghz Wi-Fi, apart from GPS and Bluetooth.
You will have to wait to find out more about the time of release and the pricing of the device from Acer.
