While the Acer Iconia Tab A510 might have seen its shipping halted due to faulty hardware, it seems that the Olympic version of the A510 could be problem free – either that or Acer has decided that the time from now until next month should be enough for them to flush out the issue and provide a fix. Yup, if you were planning on getting your hands on the Acer Iconia Tab A510 Olympic edition, the company has announced that the device will be arriving in the UK next month as the “tablet of the London 2012 Olympic Games”.
So what can users expect? For starters it appears to be pretty much the same A510 except that it has gotten the Olympic rings on its back. This also means that users can expect to find a 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra-3 quad-core processor under its hood, a display resolution of 1280×800, a 9,800mAh battery that promises about 15 hours of usage and will come preinstalled with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. A 5MP rear-facing camera capable of 720p HD video capture and Dolby Mobile 3+ audio with premium 5.1-channel HD output can also be found on the device along with a microSD card slot that will support up to an additional 32GB of storage. No word on when it will be released but it is expected to retail for £349.99 (~$550) SIM free.
