Acer ICONIA TAB A500 available for pre-order at Best Buy, costs $500 for the Wi-Fi-only version
Acer may not be the most renowned of all mobile manufacturers, but its ICONIA TAB A500 tablet certainly looks promising. For that reason we are pleased to inform you Best Buy has a good news in store - the 16GB Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet is now available for pre-order in the US for $449.99.

The tab will be a Best Buy online exclusive until April 14 - from that date onwards it will be offered for pre-order in stores. It's scheduled to be launched in both stores and online ten days later.

The Acer ICONIA TAB A500 packs the very same specifications that the more famous Motorola XOOM has - it's powered by a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and the tablet-optimized Android 3.0, has two cameras - 5MP rear one capable of recording full HD and a 2MP front-facer, 1024MB of RAM, as well as a large 10.1-inch screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution.

As you can see, the only notable difference between this tab and the Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM is that the latter is offered with a 32GB built-in storage, but Acer promises that a version of the ICONIA TAB A500 with the same amount of memory is on the way. Moreover, it's officially announced it will be launched by Verizon at some point in the future.

Also a few accessories for the tab are offered - among them are a full-sized Bluetooth keyboard that costs $69.99 and a protective case that can also be used as a nightstand for $39.99.

The tab left us with some good impressions after our brief encounter (our Acer ICONIA TAB A500 Hands-on), and for that price it definitely looks like a bargain.
