Acer Iconia Tab A501

Acer Iconia Tab A501 is another proud member of the Acer Iconia tablet family designed for both consumers and small businesses. It gives users the freedom to enjoy technology around the clock on AT&T’s HSPA+ network with enhanced backhaul providing up to 21Mbps of data transmission.

Acer Iconia Tab A501 is the twin brother of the Iconia Tab A500, it features the same specs as his brother except that it now has a 3G modem and GPS support. That was a very great improvement; it gives users the liberty to enjoy web surfing while on the move unlike with A500 which is limited to Wi-Fi connection only.

Acer Iconia Tab A501 features a huge 10.1-inch LCD multi-touch screen with WXGA resolution which provides accurate finger-tip response for controlling social media, email, productivity apps as well as games and entertainment. Power for the A501 comes from the fast Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor tuned at 1GHz with 1GB DDR2 RAM. Together with the integrated GeForce Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), A501 provides users with high-definition video, fast browsing, seamless multitasking, digital media playback and flash-based sites, games and applications.

The Acer Iconia Tab A501 is available at AT&T company-owned retail stores nationwide and online for $479.99.
