Acer ICONIA TAB A100 lands on US shores bearing a tempting price tag
Six months after it was officially unveiled at MWC, the Acer ICONIA TAB A100 has finally set foot on American shores bringing Honeycomb goodness in its most up-to-date form. Yes, folks, we are looking at the first 7-inch tablet to run Android 3.2 out of the box. However, do not be fooled by its small size because just like its bigger brother, the ICONIA TAB A500, the A100 is powered by a 1GHz Tegra 2 chipset.

With its 7-inch screen, the Acer ICONIA TAB A100 will more likely appeal to those looking for a tablet that is more than convenient to carry around yet offering plenty of display real estate. In case if the circumstances require it, however, the slate can be easily hooked up to a TV via its microHDMI out port. The A100 also offers a decent 5-megapixel main camera capable of capturing 720p footage and a front-facing shooter for video calls. In terms of software, if you are a fan of the genuine Android experience, you would be happy to know that the Honeycomb version that the ICONIA TAB A100 runs has not undergone any customizations.

Now for the best part, getting yourself an A100 will not cost you a fortune as its 8GB version is priced at the reasonable $330. Sounds tempting, doesn't it? The tablet is hitting retailers nationwide today so feel free to check it out first hand.

$330 is too much givent that the 10" tablet is between $350 and $400. The upper ceiling for this should be $300. $250 is a good market price.

I think its fairly priced, given the specs are pretty much the same except with less built in memory, but I think 8GB is still enough.
