Acer Shows off A700 Quad-Core tablet PC

It is still just a prototype, however, at the 2012 CES, Acer showed off a quad-core tablet PC calling it the A700.  At last year’s CES ,we saw a few prototypes that never made it into production.  So, Acer may just be testing the waters to see how warm the response is to a quad-core tablet PC.

This may be the first of a few quad-core tablets announced this year at CES to compete with the ASUS Transformer Prime, which is currently the only quad-core on the market.
