Default Release Date News? Pricing?

Figured I would get this party started. Curious to see when this baby comes out and at what price. I'm intrigued by the A510 at a price of $450...but the 1080p HD playback has my mouth watering....I'm just afraid it's going to come in at a price that makes it impractical.

Anyone hear rumors on release date? Last I saw online they were saying May.

The display had be going too, but seems the iPad 3 has a reason for having a big gpu. Video output at 1080p is great on the A510 I have, but seems the gpu might choke some pushing data along with video, at there res. Seems game emulators could fair for the worse as well.

Again, why does the iPad 3 have a big gpu unless needed to push the pixels? Apple is not going to blow hundreds of millions for nothing.

According to Acer, its in stock and shipping right now!

I've been waiting on the Transformer Infinity and haven't even paid attention to this one. So Tempting for $450. Impressive stats.

Do you have any lag with the high resolution?

Sounds like a laptop cooling pad might be in order if I get this one.

Not really. I mean a small stutter here and there but still 10x smoother than the galaxy 2 with all my apps and Widgets loaded.

Mine came in today and I'm loving it.
Managed to root it and posted a guide if anyone's interested!
