Acer’s new special-edition Iconia Tab A510 packs winning tech and embodies Olympian strength and speed
October 18, 2012
Acer Philippines recently announced the arrival of the new Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Games Edition, bringing to its customers the ultimate mobile device for pushing boundaries and exploring beyond limits.
The exclusive 10.1-inch Android tablet features a marathon battery life of up to 18 hours, the unprecedented performance of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile super processor, a winning suite of productivity apps and technologies, and the refined, evolved interface of the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) platform. It also carries the signature innovation of tech pioneer Acer, as well as the spirit of the world’s greatest sporting event: the Olympic Games.
Acer, a Worldwide Partner of the Olympic Movement and an official supporter of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, designed the special-edition A510 for champions: those ready and set to become the best they can be—at work, play, and everything in between.
Embodying Olympian strength and speed
Like its users, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Games Edition is built to achieve. The tablet’s smooth, sleek cover—which elegantly simulates the texture of premium leather and comes stamped with the distinctive Olympics/Acer logo—embodies invincible strength and undeniable style. It also protects the A510’s beautiful 10.1-inch LCD screen, while framing the dazzling visuals produced by the tablet’s impressive display capabilities: full HD (1280 by 800) resolution, hardware-accelerated Adobe Flash integration, front- and rear-facing cameras, and capacitive multi-touchscreen technology.
Complementing the device’s head-turning design is its jaw-dropping speed. As Acer’s first NVIDIA Tegra 3 tablet, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 delivers up to 5 times the performance of previous-generation devices. Its energy-savvy mobile quad-core CPU guarantees more power, less battery consumption, and more effective workload distribution, enabling the tablet to work at Olympian pace. With the Acer Iconia Tab A510, users can enjoy smooth HD multimedia playback, hardcore console-quality gaming, extreme multitasking, and twice-as-fast Web browsing—anywhere and anytime. A fifth battery-saving core, meanwhile, efficiently handles low-power tasks like music playback and active standby, helping extend the Acer Iconia Tab A510’s industry-leading battery life.
Power-packed design for long-lasting entertainment and productivity
Only 0.4 inches thin, the slim and lightweight Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Games Edition does not need extra bulk to set the benchmark for endurance. Its Ultra 36.2 Wh battery, which is 50 percent bigger than that of other 10.1-inch Android tablets, is seamlessly integrated into the tablet’s lean, power-packed design. Thanks to this battery, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 is able to effortlessly provide up to 15 hours of video playback, 12 hours of Wi-Fi video streaming, and 8.8 hours of Wi-Fi browsing.
Acer’s new Android tablet doesn’t need a full multi-channel speaker setup to sound amazing, either. Built-in Dolby ® Mobile 3+ technology (with premium 5.1 HD output) delivers cinematic surround sound to users’ movies and music, and heightens every listening experience with its powerful boost and bass extension. The A510, moreover, includes high-definition voice and three-meter recording capabilities, complete with dual-microphone noise suppression, far-field voice recognition, and speech recognition technologies for delivering high-fidelity sound and high-precision recording.
If this Olympic-edition Iconia Tab’s hardware is well-equipped to handle heavyweight apps and tasks, so is its software. The Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system introduces feature enhancements—such as a new voice-activated search and input engine, one-touch access to visual thumbnails, improved 3D rendering, and a beautiful, simplified home screen—that revolutionize the tablet experience. And, just like in every beloved Android-powered device, hundreds of thousands of apps are available for instant download at the Google Play store.
Meanwhile, a complete suite of productivity apps transforms the Acer Iconia Tab A510 into a mobile business powerhouse. The easy-to-use Polar Office 3.5, which is compatible with Microsoft Office, enables the viewing and editing of documents for on-the-go access to critical data. The Acer Print app, meanwhile, features cutting-edge wireless printing technology supporting a wide variety of files, printing formats, and printers. Evernote, the critically acclaimed app for capturing and remembering everything, is also pre-installed on every Olympic-edition A510.
Available in 16 GB and 32 GB models, with room for an extra 32 GB of SD storage, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Games Edition boasts of vital data management features. These include a Micro-USB 2.0 port, a Micro-HDMI port (supporting VGA to HDMI connection for on-the-spot presentations), the DLNA-standard Acer clear.fi wireless multimedia sharing solution, and a signature UI control app called Acer Ring, which opens up a series of key settings, bookmarks, and contextual menu options with a single screen grab.
In packing all these, the Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympic Games Edition delivers on its promise of being the ultimate mobile device for champions. The special iteration of Acer’s state-of-the-art Android tablet stays true to its Olympic theme, demonstrating once and for all that there are no limits to what its users can achieve.
