Early this morning, Acer officially announced a new device to the Iconia Tab A500 line-up. Unveiling the Olympic Games Edition, this new model shares plenty of the same attributes as the tablets in its lineage, save for a couple of alterations to help support and promote the summer Olympics.
Specifically, there will be an Olympics logo on the back of the device. If that’s not enough to draw your attention, then perhaps the stock Android experience Acer promises in their press release. You’ll still be getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor under the hood. So if you’re a fan of the Olympics, maybe a new tablet is the way to show it off.
The full press release is below.

Acer Introduces the ICONIA TAB A510 Olympic Games Edition – This ultimate tool for the road features very long battery life, quad-core performance, and mobile productivity tools
Acer introduces the ICONIA TAB A510 Olympic Games Edition. Celebrating Acer’s partnership with the Olympic Movement, the design unites the Acer and Olympic logos, and is available in black or silver. The ICONIA TAB A510 is the company’s newest Android Ice Cream Sandwich-based tablet. It features 15 hours of battery life for true all-day usability, a powerful NVIDIA® TEGRA® 3 quad-core processor, and the latest tools for mobile productivity, sharing and more.
The ICONIA TAB A510′s 9800mAh battery supports up to 15 hours of HD video playback. The extra power doesn’t add bulk to the tablet because parallel battery packaging keeps it slim.
A powerful NVIDIA® TEGRA® 3 quad-core processor executes a smart workload distribution with more power and less battery consumption. It handles heavy multitasking, HD videos, console-like gaming, and faster web browsing, while a fifth “companion” core takes care of low-power tasks like music playback and active standby.
Mobile productivity apps include Acer Print, which makes wireless printing easier with support for various document formats, photos and web pages. Acer Print is compatible with 87% of brand-name printers on the current market.
Polaris® Office, meanwhile, is optimized for tablet-based work. It provides practical improvements for editing and reading MS Office documents on the go.
Noise suppression and echo cancellation technologies enhance audio recording, and video calls in HD Voice are excellent. Superior audio enjoyment for music, movies and more comes courtesy of Dolby® Mobile 3+ with premium 5.1-channel HD output.
The ICONIA TAB A510 Olympic Games Edition starts a series of products that Acer designed specially for the Olympic Games in London. Available for consumers starting from March, this is the perfect tablet for cheering on your favorite athletes during the biggest sports event of 2012.
