Back at CES we got our first glimpse of the Acer Iconia Tab A700 and A510, and in the true spirit of shameless cash-ins Acer has announced that it's releasing Olympic Games special editions to tie in with London 2012. Hardware-wise nothing has changed, and the only difference between the tablets is the display resolution — the A700 has a 10-inch 1920 x 1200 display while the A510 has a 1280x800 panel. Both run Android 4.0 powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor, with 15-hour 9800mAh battery, but Acer has added a screen-printed Olympic logo on the back of the tablets. In terms of software Acer hasn't mentioned any customizations, suggesting that the A700 and A510 should offer the almost-Vanilla Android experience we saw at CES.

These are the first in a range of Acer products launched in time for the Olympics, which the company says have been "designed specially for the Olympic Games in London." The tablets will be available in both black and silver. Pricing for the special edition has yet to be announced, but we're told that they will go on sale sometime this month, fitting in with the March availability we heard in late January.
