Being first has its advantages.
Taiwanese computer maker Acer was the first major company to hold a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show Sunday, where it briefly showed off a powerful new Iconia Tab slate with a quad-core processor and high-resolution 1080p display.
Acer VP of mobile computing Campbell Kan teased the 10.1-inch Android tablet to the CES crowd, saying simply, “Isn’t it cool?”
The new Iconia Tab will be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 system-on-a-chip, but other than that we don’t have any other details about the device.
While the specs initially sound interesting, I can’t help but see this as the CES equivalent of an obnoxious Internet commenter shouting “First!” in a comment thread. We expect many quad-core tablets to be unveiled at CES 2012 (Asus has already released its quad-core Transformer Prime), and many of them will likely be more tempting than Acer’s, especially since the company has failed to impress with any of its Android tablets so far.
