Powered by an NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 mobile 1GHz dual-core processor and integrated GeForce™ GPU, it lets customers enjoy high-definition video, speedy browsing, multitasking, digital media playback and Flash®-based sites, games and applications.

High-performance, feature-rich entertainment in a chic design
Svelte and stylish, the Acer Iconia Tab A501’s elegant aesthetics tout a high-gloss finish with an appealing engraved pattern for a flash of style.

The thin and light aluminum design weighs just 1.69 pounds and measures only 10.24" (w) x 6.97" (d) x 0.52" (h), so it fits nicely in a handbag, briefcase or backpack.

With its 10-point touch display and six-axis motion sensor meter control, this leading-edge tablet smoothly runs premium HD arcade and online games on a par with high-end game consoles. The built-in GPS can be combined with various apps to enable customers to enjoy navigation and location searches while traveling and driving. Plus, integrated Bluetooth® allows consumers to connect the tablet to a variety of other devices, such as headsets and printers.
