Acer Iconia Tab

Acer in June launched the Iconia Tab A700, a tablet with a screen resolution that rivals that of the new iPad and is a more viable alternative for cost-conscious buyers.

The 10.1-inch A700 has a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution that technically falls short compared to the new iPad's 2,048 x 1,536 display, but beats out most other tablet PCs on the market, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the iPad 2, and the Asus Transformer Prime, which have 1,280 x 800 pixel counts.

The A700 also comes with Dolby Mobile 3 surround sound and an HDMI port that allows users to stream content to other, larger displays when a 10.1-inch screen isn't enough. Acer said the new tablet is available for presale now, starting at $449.99, which is $50 less than the lowest-end new 16-GB iPad.
