Almost nine months ago to the day, Nvidia demonstrated its Tegra 3 processor playing back a high-definition video across a 2560x1600 display. The subtext was clear: tomorrow's tablets would feature high-DPI screens. Now, SlashGear has dug up details on an upcoming tablet that meets that description—though its resolution is a slightly less impressive 1920x1200.
As the site points out, a "profile documentation" XML file on Acer's website reveals the following key specs for an "Acer A701" tablet:
<prf:CPU>NVIDIA Tegra 3</prf:CPU>
SlashGear reckons the A701 will be a 10" device with both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. (The XML file does have a few entries that start with "GSM_.") Documentation on Acer's website also betrays the existence of another 1920x1200 tablet, the A700, which could be a Wi-Fi-only variant of the A701. Both documents also mention an Android 3.2.1 browser. If I were a betting man, though, I'd count on the final product running Android 4.0.
