In the recent weeks, there had been lot of talk about Acer A500 Tab icon tablet. Designed for maximum multimedia enjoyment, Icon Tab A500 has a 10.1 inch display with high resolution, high color contrast and wide viewing angle: the colors are crisper and images can also be viewed from different angles.
This will share the vision of an HD video with friends when you are traveling or away from home, but only in 720p, as indicated in the notes to the product page dedicated Acer A500 icon Tab. This is a surprise because the support for 1080p HD video decoding Full is taken for granted on the device 2 and the same Nvidia Tegra Acer had included the “HD experience” among the features of the Icon Tab A500 in the slides of the official presentation.
However, Acer A500 Tab icon should receive a software update by June, that will allow users to play back HD video at 1080p and not only at 720p. Thanks to the integrated HDMI port, then Icon Tab A500 can be used to reproduce the contents in Full HD on a TV or a monitor. At the moment we do not know if the update will involve only the HD video decoding engine or other components.
