Here’s the Acer Iconia Tab A500 in action. There’s that big 10.1-inch multitouch display and laser-finished metal casing. Looks nice doesn’t it?
This isn’t the finished product that was announced earlier today; this is a display model running Android 2.2 Froyo. The real deal, which is due to launch in April, will run on Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
Spec-wise, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 comes with a 5-megapixel main camera (with flash) on the back, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for videocalls. Like many Android 3.0 tablets we’ve seen, the A500 has a Tegra 2 dual core processor beating away underneath its skin. This means that it should be a real beast capable of kicking out some serious graphics.

Stereo speakers at the bottom and the 5-megapixel camera with flash up top. Though we don’t spend a lot of time looking at the back of phones and tablets, we have to admit that the laser-engraved aluminium jacket of the A500 is quite pleasing to the eye.
The Acer Iconia Tab A500 comes with two USB ports, a standard sized one and a micro one.
Behold: a power button, a 3.5mm audio jack and an HDMI port. The Iconia Tab A500 promises 1080p HD video playback and comes with Dolby Mobile technology.
Volume rocker and a screen lock control on the right, aforementioned HDMI, audio jack and power button on the right. Given its size, it’s a fairly light device. Probably due to the jacket being made of aluminium and not adamantium.
