According to rumours in Q4 2011, Acer were among a trio of manufacturers, along with Dell and Asus, that were apparently shutting shop on Android in favour of forthcoming Windows 8. It later transpired that Asus were staying for the ride, and it now appears that Acer, far from ditching Android, is quietly concocting two quad core Android tablets.
The imminent arrival of Acer's quad core tablets was leaked via unearthed source code that clearly showed the work in progress. There is limited info at the moment, but the tablets in question are going by the name of Acer Iconia A510 and Acer Iconia A511, with the main difference between the two being the addition of 3G on Acer Iconia A511.
Heavenly Android has taken the time to investigate and uncover as many leaked Acer Iconia A510/A511 specs as we can. Under the hood, these two mean machines will be powered by Nvidia Tegra 3 chips and an accompanying Nvidia GPU. The tablets are rumoured to have a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. With the above combined specs gaming and movie viewing will be almost immaculate, with speed and graphics at optimal performance.
Although not evident on the aforementioned source code, it's presumed that Acer Iconia A510/511 will ship with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is something we should expect in 2012, especially on high end Android devices. Surprisingly, Asus Eee Pad Transformer will ship with Android 3.2 ( Honeycomb).
Though there are very little other specs to reveal for the moment, it's expected that we will see the arrival of these quad core tablets before the emergence of Windows 8. It seems that it's a race against time for high end Android 4.0 tablets to be released to consumers ahead of their expected Windows 8 rivals and therefore gain favour.
We anticipate more concrete evidence of Acer Iconia A510/A511 and a third quad core cousin, Acer A700 tablet at CES 2012, which takes place between January 10th-13th.
