Currently, there are some markets that started selling the tablet, but here in the US, its landing has yet to occur. Interestingly enough, Mobile-Review mentions that the 16GB version of the Acer ICONIA TAB A200 will be selling for 14,990 rubles in Russia, where it’s expected to go on sale in February 2012. Essentially, that translates to a $470 price point, which isn’t bad per se, but when you factor in how much pricing is a key item in dictating a tablet’s success (or failure), it’ll be interesting to see what it’ll be sporting when it lands stateside.
Obviously, if you simply cannot wait for this to land in the US, you can always opt to shell out the $470 to import this guy – though, there’s still the matter of shipping cost with it. As a refresher, the ICONIA TAB A200 features a 10.1” 1280 x 800 display, 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, aGPS, Wi-Fi, full sized USB port, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
As it stands, Acer’s tablet is surely going to be competing with the likes of some other highly prized tablets – like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime. So again, pricing will more than likely spell doom or success for this one.
