Will it be better than the A7?

This Tegra 2 tablet just saw its official press release. It is driven by a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 512 MB of DDR2 667 MHz RAM and Android 2.2. The display is 10.1" and multitouch, memory spans from 4 GB ($400) to 64 GB ($700) and there is a 1.3 MP front facing camera and an analog mic. The A10 has a 3-axis accelerometer, an ambient light sensor, vibrate mode, HDMI-out and a USB port. There's microSD support for additional storage.
That $400 price tag for the 4GB version is apparently ONLY for early orders, so get in fast if you want good pricing. This tablet's 7" predecessor- the eLocity A7, had serious display issues. eLocity claimed the display was multitouch, but it was not. Video evidence tipped this as a hardware bug, not a software issue.
Most reviews of the A7 were positive though, and it seems to have been generally seen as a solid alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S.
The A10 looked fantastic at CES- although not much different from the horde of other 10.1" slates. The A10's display is made out of Gorilla Glass, which bodes well for an overall jump in quality from the A7.
