Acer Iconia Tab A200 arriving Jan 15th for $330, to be served ICS mid-February
The tablet industry seems to have changed a lot in the last month after the introduction of budget 7 inchers like the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet. How exactly? The prices seem to be going down each day and more affordable slates are starting to flood the market and the Acer Iconia Tab A200 is going to be one of them. But what’s unique about the A200 is that it sports a large 10.1-inch display but its price is still very affordable, starting at just $329.99. If you've already started drooling, let us also mention that the Acer Iconia Tab A200 release date is set for January 15th.

Also, while initially it will ship with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, Acer is promising to update it swiftly to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in mid-February.

There’s no catch, if you don’t count the fact that the most basic $330 version features only 8 gigs of internal memory. That’s not fatal, though, as there’s a microSD expansion card slot. Under the hood, the Iconia Tab A200 runs on a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip. The 10.1-inch display comes with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and the battery is also pretty solid with a runtime of 8 hours on a single charge. Oh, and it has a full-sized USB 2.0 port for connecting your favorite devices and getting files on and off the tablet.

Is this your next tablet?

Price is about right. Specs are not that bad. I might be getting one of these.

Lol, that's what I thought, but you have to admit Acer has done a good job. I hope they succeed with the A200!
