Acer's Iconia Tab A510 went on sale back in April, but according to the company the device has been delayed due to component issues. As explained in a Facebook post from Acer Germany, both the Wi-Fi-only A510 and its 3G sibling, the A511, have been affected; judging by Google Translate's take on the text, the problem stems from a "faulty component." The company doesn't specify which specific elements are to blame, but while we didn't love the device when we reviewed it earlier this month, we didn't notice any fatal component problems either. No new shipping date has been announced. The delay isn't impacting delivery dates for the Iconia Tab A700, however. We were told that the A700 — and its 1080p display — would be shipping in the second quarter of 2012. The company appears to be on track to make its target: according to Acer Germany, the tablet will ship no later than the week of June 10th.
