First introduced back in February, the Acer Iconia A100 may finally have a U.S. launch window.
According to an Acer U.S. PR team, the Honeycomb-equipped Iconia A100 will be coming to the west sometime during Q3 2011, a few months after its launch in Europe. It is currently available for pre-order in the UK for £299 ($491 USD), but a U.S. specific price point is still unknown. It is hopeful that the tablet will launch for under $500, however, judging from the current price of the device in the U.K.
Along with the HTC Flyer, the Iconia A100 is one of the few known upcoming 7-inch tablets to support Android Honeycomb. The A100 is expected to be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 APU, with 512MB RAM, 1024x600 resolution screen, mini HDMI, USB, and front and rear cameras.
Other members of the Iconia family, including the larger Iconia W500, will reportedly retail for a higher price, while the Iconia A500 is available now for $450.
