Acer ICONIA TAB A200 10" Android tablet shows up at Best Buy for $350

Acer ICONIA TAB A200 10
While we wait for the quad-core 7" Asus slate that is supposed to command a $250 price tag, we can sooth our nerves with the Acer ICONIA TAB A200, which finally appeared on Best Buy for $349.99.

For a 10-incher at that price, the ICONIA A200 is a pretty decent proposition - 1280x800 resolution, Tegra 2 dual-core chipset, full-size USB port, and 16GB of storage. Granted, you only get a front-facing 2MP camera for video chat, and no rear shooter, but on a 10" tablet it's not something to fuss about too much anyway.

Best Buy is carrying the "Titanium Gray" version, while there is a flashier red edition out there as well. You can check our benchmark session with the ICONIA TAB A200, as well as our hands-on here, while waiting for the full review to follow shortly. Oh, and meanwhile you might bask in the fact that the slate should be upgraded to Android ICS in mid-February.

After using the Acer A500 since release, I regret ever getting it. Tegra 2 dual core was supposed to be an iPad killer. The Acer is even more sluggish than my 1st gen iPad, locks up and needs a reboot almost every day, has poor battery life and a poor screen. The Kindle at $200 is a much better deal. I can't see paying more than $200 for a generic Android tablet ever again.
