Acer's Iconis Tab A510 has just begun offering pre-orders, and pushes the pricing down on a Tegra 3-sporting tablet down to just $449.99, $50 less than the similar-specced ASUS model. Acer's A510 sports a 10.1-inch 1280x800-pixel display, 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC, 1GB RAM, and 32GB storage expandable by microSD.


Battery life is also said to be good thanks to the 36.26Whr battery, not quite as much as the new iPad, but much better than older Iconia Tabs, and the Prime. The battery does come with some draw backs, though, with the A510 weighing in at 100g more than the Prime. Android 4.0 is baked into the tablet, as is Acer's Ring UI. Pre-loaded software includes the usual media players, printing software, Polaris Office 3.5 and more.

A full-sized USB port is not featured on the new A510, but a microUSB port is still offered, this supports up to 2TB HDDs, which is great for those who need additional storage. The Acer Iconia Tab A510 is available for pre-order at the usual e-tailers, but no shipping dates are available at the moment.
