3G-enabled Acer ICONIA TAB A501 available now at Clove
Okay, it may not be among the slimmest and lightest tablets on the market, but the Acer ICONIA TAB A501 packs enough potential to compete with pretty much every Honeycomb tablet around. The only thing that has been missing so far, however, has been 3G connectivity, which might have made more than a few people looking for a decent tablet to go with a different make.

Well, UK retailer Clove has the 3G-enabled Acer ICONIA TAB A501 in stock and ready to ship. Unfortunately, it comes with a rather steep price tag of roughly $850, which seems like a bit too much for what you are getting, namely a dual-core Tegra 2 chipset, 10.1-inch display with 1280 by 800 resolution, 32 gigabytes of storage, and Android 3.0 Honeycomb running the show. The ICONIA TAB A501 also packs a 5-megapixel main and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a standard size USB 2.0 port.

If you have your mind on the Acer ICONIA TAB A501 and the lack of 3G is not a dealbreaker for you, the nearly identical, Wi-Fi-only ICONIA TAB A500 is available at Best Buy for as low as $450. On the other hand, if you absolutely insist on being connected to the Internet at all times, just sit tight and be patient as AT&T and Verizon are expected to have the tablet on their shelves sometimes soon.

And, Acer have been on time with Honeycomb updates (just a pity Google pulled 3.1)
