Best Buy is selling the Honeycomb filled Acer ICONIA Tab A500 for $450
Up until now, you really have to dish out a boatload of money to experience either of the two currently available Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets in the US – which so happen to be the Motorola XOOM and T-Mobile G-Slate. Of course, you can save yourself some money if happen to decide on picking up a non-Honeycomb powered device, but then again, the experience is pretty much like most smartphones out there.

Enter the Acer ICONIA Tab A500, priced at a reasonable $450 through Best Buy, which so happens to come to market finally breaking into that beloved sub-$500 price point. Not only do consumers have the opportunity to experience Honeycomb without having to pay a high premium for it, but the Acer ICONIA Tab A500 packs along some modern hardware to glorify its overall capacity. Specifically, this 10.1” Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet with WXGA resolution sports the all too common dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, and a 2-megapixel camera.

Obviously, the best thing about this one is that it’s entering the market with a Wi-Fi only model first; which contributes to its lower price point. So if the previous two Honeycomb tablets were too much for you taste, head on over to Best Buy’s web site and place your order for this one.

1 gig of ddr2 ram. hmm. what are the ram specs on the xoom and slate? Are they DDR2 as well or not? That could be a cheap powerhouse if they dont.

It looks like it will be a good tablet but i still think the asus eee transformer is the best. has all the same specs but for a 399.99 price it cant be beat. Along with the detachable keyboard and 16 hours battery life i would put that up against all android tablets to date
