Acer 7-Inch Tablet Launched Today, Starts at $330
If you've been waiting for an Android Honeycomb tablet that's significantly cheaper than the iPad, your moment may have come. The Acer Iconia Tab A100 Android tablet launches today for $330.
The Iconia Tab A100's 7-inch display is much smaller than other Android Honeycomb tablets , but it's the first Honeycomb tablet to ship with version 3.2 of Honeycomb. Android 3.2 brings improvements to the system's speed and interface, but it also makes it possible for Honeycomb to run on screens smaller than 10 inches.
Outside, the Iconia Tab has mini-HDMI, micro-USB, micro-SD card and headphone ports, but strangely it also includes a separate charging port because it won't charge via the dock connector or a USB cable like most tablets. Inside is an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor with an integrated graphics processor and 1GB of RAM.
The Acer Iconia Tab A100 is available today. The 8GB version starts at $330 while the 16GB version costs $350.
