Acer announces Verizon 4G Android Iconia Tab A500

Acer has announced the arrival of a brand new tablet, the Acer Iconia Tab A500, which will connect in the States via the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.

The A500 will feature a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, and will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 1GHz dual core processor. It will run Android (version yet to be confirmed), with an Acer UI (4.5) over the top, although Flash 10.1 support is confirmed.

It will be optimised for a HD web experience, 3D gaming and multimedia playback - wherever you are (that has a Verizon LTE signal presumably).

"Innovation is in our DNA," said Campbell Kan, vice president of Acer's Smart Handheld BU.

"We are proud to once again offer users the most advanced technologies. With the Iconia Tab A500 supporting 4G LTE, users will be able to wirelessly navigate, download or stream as seamlessly as they do with a wired connection. This is indeed another step toward a truly mobile Internet experience."

No pricing details have yet been confirmed, and there's no pictures of the device yet either.
