The A series of Acer’s tablets apparently has a new member joining the flock soon. Known as the Acer Iconia Tab A200, the upcoming Android tablet has been submitted to, and consequently certified by, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) .
The Bluetooth standards body has described the A200 on its website, with an image included, as lightweight with a size smaller than a magazine’s. As such, a 10-inch display seems exaggerated, whereas a diagonal measure between 7 to 8.9 inches is more likely. The design is awfully similar to the Galaxy Tab 10.1, with curved edges and a thinner, minimalist look and feel.
There’s no clear indication on whether the Iconia Tab A200 will come preinstalled with the latest Android version, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, or obtain it instead as a future update. In fact, the tablet runs on a “tablet-tailored” version that somehow rings Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
Acer previously released two tablets for the Android platform: the 10-inch Acer Iconia Tab A500 and smaller Acer Iconia Tab A100. Judging by the names, the Iconia Tab A200 is expected to be the middle ground with a reasonable price.
No other features and specs are known so far, although we can’t leave the possibility that the Iconia Tab A200 will sport the Tegra 3 quad-core processor. Nonetheless, Bluetooth SIG says it’s going to be “a whole new touch experience” that will be available worldwide.
Quad-core Android tablets anyone?
