Acer Iconia Tab A100 Sneaks into Walmart, Costs US$349
The Acer Iconia Tab A100 has been elusive, at best, to many of those who were monitoring its whereabouts. It was spotted visiting the Federal Communications Commission early this month, and news began to spread of the Acer Iconia Tab A100’s imminent arrival. It’s now here. At Walmart. For US$349.
The folks at Engadget have been sent a photo of the Iconia Tab A100’s display tag, and the tag tells all that you will be getting for US$349:
- dual-core 1-GHz processor
- 7-inch screen (1024×600 resolution)
- Android 3.0 Honeycomb
- 2-megapixel front camera
- 5-megapixel back camera
- 8 gigabytes of internal storage
- Wi-Fi connectivity
- case, AC adapter, dock
Most 7-inch tablets are still stuck with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but the Iconia Tab A100 already has Android 3.0 Honeycomb and may be receiving its update to Android 3.2 Honeycomb anytime in the coming weeks. Android and Me believes the delay in the launch of the A100 may have been due to Google’s request for Acer to wait until Android 3.2 Honeycomb is ready.
Engadget’s tipster, however, mentioned that although the display tag for the Iconia Tab A100 has already been readied, the tablets are not yet on display in the stores. But, the tags are ready, and you know what happens after that.
Is US$349 cheap enough for you? Or do you think Acer can go lower?
