Target puts the Acer ICONIA TAB A500 up for $299 this weekend, well, kind of
If the rumor turns out to be correct, the special will be given the green light this Sunday, August 14. Adding a dose of credibility to the rumor is that insider photo of a promotional leaflet, which has the deal clearly outlined.
For those who need a reminder, the Acer ICONIA TAB A500 runs the tablet-optimized Honeycomb platform and is powered by a 1GHz Tegra 2 chipset backed up by 1 gig of RAM. Its display is 10.1 inches in diagonal and boasts a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, which puts the slate on par with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Add to that the 5-megapixel main camera and the 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and you get one pretty decent Android tablet considering the reasonable amount of cash that you will drop on it.

$300 is about the right price for a 10" Honeycomb tablet. For what it is, that price makes sense the way netbooks and $500/$600 tablets never did.

You still have to pay 400 dollars, yes you do get a 100 dollar gift card, but I'd rather it just be 299 PERIOD.

Well, if you never shop at Target, I guess you can look at it that way, but for me, I'd get the tab for $400, and get $100 dollars worth of groceries for free.. or I can look at it as getting the tab for $300 and paying 100 dollars for my groceries.. Great deal. If I wasn't getting a phone soon then I would seriously look into getting this tablet.
