AT&T Bringing Out the Acer Iconia Tab A501

The Acer Iconia Tab A501 is a great new tablet that will truly be more impressive than its competitors. In fact, this device has made it easier for people to handle different kinds of functions thanks to the new operating system that comes with the tablet. In fact, AT&T is going to be selling this product at a great value. I think this has a good shot for getting into the world of tablets and even competing with Apple.

What the tablet is about

The A501 is a tablet that features a seven inch screen and works with a good amount of internal memory. It works with 16 GB of memory although there are also more expensive 32 and 64 GB versions of the tablet for sale as well. A touchscreen will work well to get people to move around the program. This includes moving around with the Hynix DDR2 memory powering all kinds of functions.

SD card support is also used. However, this can only be used for loading media files onto it. These include music and video files along with some other kinds of documents that can be read by different applications on the tablet.

The Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system will also be used here. This is the most advanced version of the OS yet. It will also be able to support the pending Android 3.1 upgrade when it does come out. I will definitely be looking forward to this update.

What is its value?

The value of this Acer model will be very strong. It will be worth $480 to get a 16 GB version. However, a cheaper version for $330 can be used. This is provided that the user pays for a two year plan to get the device to link into the AT&T 4G network.

I enjoy this network because it is very fast and easy to work with. However, it is not going to work in every single spot. It has worked for me for the most part though.

Fast speeds

The big point about the 4G network is that it will allow the device to work with a variety of faster functions that are easier to handle on any kind of computer. This is a great benefit but there are some concerns about how the 4G network may not be available in all spots. This is a concern but the speeds can be useful when they are used on the tablet.

The Acer Iconia Tab A501 will be available for use on September 18. This is a great time for the release in that it will be coming out well ahead of other devices that are coming, thus helping to get Acer a slight advantage over many other companies that want to get new tablets out. The support from AT&T should also help to keep it up.

The 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is Smaller But Stronger

Land Rover has introduced a brand new Range Rover model. This is the all new 2012 Evoque. This is being released in honor of the fortieth anniversary of the release of the Range Rover line of vehicles.

This is a smaller vehicle when compared to other Range Rover vehicles. This smaller size is used as a means of giving a person the ability to work with more controls that are not too much of a challenge to work with, thus making this one of the best vehicles in the 2012 season. I feel that this might work a little better for anyone who wants to find a smaller Land Rover that is not too difficult to handle.

A strong engine

A great part of the Evoque is its strong engine. I like this engine because of its power. This features a 240 hp engine that is faster than other engines that Land Rover has released. It works to get a person to go from 0 to 60 in 6.7 seconds. A key part of this comes from how the vehicle is lighter in weight than other types of vehicles from Land Rover.

Saves energy

A key feature of what the Evoque uses is its ability to work with many functions to help keep the use of energy at a minimum as the vehicle is being used. The Evoque has a suspension with aluminum materials to help make the vehicle work effectively without adding a great amount of weight or energy onto the vehicle.

The lighter features are used to help reduce the weight of the vehicle. It is a little more than three hundred pounds less in weight than the most recent Land Rover vehicle tested. This makes it a little easier for the vehicle to move around. This is something that I particularly enjoy.
Great steering

Electric power steering is also used in the vehicle. This steering feature is used to help improve the ability of the vehicle to be well controlled without any issues.

The EPS feature on the vehicle will work to help make it easier for the vehicle to be controlled and adjusted as quickly as possible. In fact, the relays that the steering uses with the suspension in the vehicle can help to keep the vehicle easy to control without worrying about any issues from the vehicle being too difficult to move around or control.

The Evoque is a truly impressive vehicle that is a very worthy addition to the world of Land Rover Range Rover vehicles. This is a lighter vehicle that is used to help make it easier for a person to control the car without any issues coming out of it. The lighter design works to make it easier for an engine to be as effective as possible.

Maserati Kubang

Maserati has entered the luxury SUV game with its new Kubang. This is an appealing model that offers a variety of different items that are unique to the vehicle and has made me a little more interested in what Maserati has to offer.

This vehicle features a great design that is strong and easy to handle. It also works with one of the more powerful engines to have come out in recent years. The features that come with this vehicle are some of the best things for anyone to see when it comes to finding a quickly vehicle in the world of luxury SUVs.

An impressive engine

The engine for the Kubang is going to be a brand new option. This is an engine that will be designed by Paolo Martinelli, a designer who is experienced with the Ferrari Formula 1 team. It will feature an eight speed automatic system that is easy to adjust and will support strong speeds. The engine will be a V8 engine that can support 390 bhp at 7000 rpm. This works very well along with the four wheel drive feature that is used to help keep the vehicle working as well as possible.
How many people?

The capacity of the Kubang is very strong. It can feature space for five people with two going in the front and three being found in the back part. An interesting point about the Kubang is that has support to get an additional two seats down to the back of the vehicle to create a third row of seating. This may be used to create something that is attractive without any issues coming out of the way.

Where the design is inspired

A big part of getting the Kubang ready involves its strong design. The vehicle is designed with a chassis that is similar to what Jeep has been using with its Grand Cherokee. I feel that people should be a little more used to this thanks to this feature.

However, it has a profile that is curved and slanted to where it has a coupe appearance to it. This is used to help create something appealing and handsome that anyone can have fun with. This is combined with a large grille to make the vehicle more refined and even more aggressive on the road. It features a combination of luxury and toughness that make this unique.

This is a vehicle that will be attractive and useful. These are great features that are impressive and will work without any difficulties to ensure that a person will have a better time with controlling a vehicle and will do more with it.
