The Acer Iconia Tab A500 Android tablet has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display and NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, which means it can handle HD video playback without breaking a sweat. But what if you want to watch your movies on a big screen? It looks like Acer will offer a docking station with HDMI output and a wireless remote control.
Blogeee has snagged some pictures of the new dock and remote. The remote lets you control audio or video playback without getting your lazy butt up from the couch. The dock also props up the tablet at an angle so you can watch without plugging in an external display, although I wouldn’t want to sit too far away from a 10 inch screen while watching movies.
The Acer Iconia Tab A500 actually has a mini-HDMI port built into the case, so the docking station isn’t absolutely necessary for displaying content on a big screen TV. But it certainly is necessary if Acer wants to get you to spend a little extra money on the $450 tablet.
