Originally the Iconia Tab A501 looked to be no different than the Iconia Tab A500 although there is now a new request for upgrade granted by the FCC on June 12th.
The product, Tablet Computer, has been granted by FCC dated 06/12/2011, FCC ID: HLZTMDMA501A.
Now we, Acer Incorporated, would like to modify the authorized equipment for below changes:
Antenna change of WWAN Aux(antenna gain is lower than original antenna type is same as the original case.)
eMMC add Scandisk 64G and Samsung g4G
LPDDR2 add Hynix 8Gb
Camera add Liteon / 11P2BA501
Battery add SANYO BAT1010
Touch +LCD add AUO+Cando B101EW05 V1
USB cable added ICT(DC081001A00) and MEC(DC081001A00)
With these new image and touch sensors along with huge increase in storage we can see the A501 being a nice upgrade to its A500 predecessor. The Acer Iconia Tab A501 will now be the only Android Tablet with 64GB of storage to compete with the iPads 64GB storage to date. Although we still have to mention that Archos will be releasing a tablet with 250GB later this year.
