    One amazing fact about these tablets is they are powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor. This is a quad core processor, which is it will have as much as four times the processing power of a normal CPU. The processors are clocked at 1300 MHz. This powerful processor and high clock speed ensures that the ice cream sandwich version will run without any flaw in these device.

    This makes them excellent for gaming and media centric applications as well. The tablets mainly differ in their screen resolution. A510 has a 1200 X 800 pixel screen whereas A700 has a 1920 X 1080 pixel screen. This makes the latter more suitable for watching videos and web browsing.

    Acer Iconia A510 tablets price tag is not yet clear but is expected to be within the range of around Rs. 25,000/ to Rs. 30,000 and the price of Acer Iconia A 700 is not available.

    These are the showroom price without considering the taxes, so be ready to shed out a bit more money than these figures if you intend to get your hands on one. Also the pricing will vary according to the internal memory capacity.
