The Acer Iconia A500 has become quite popular with a good specsheet but decent price-tag. The 10” slate with a Tegra 2 processor and Honeycomb comes without 3G right now. But things might change soon, as Netbooknews reports of a Iconia Tab termed A501 stopping at FCC for approval to go with AT&T 3G services.

The filing shows support for GSM 850 within frequencies 824.2 till 848.8MHz and 869.2 till 893.8MHz, 1900 (1850.2~1909.8MHz, 1930.2~1989.8MHz) and W-CDMA II and V bands with support for HSPA protocols.

The Acer Iconia Tabs, along with the Asus Transformer, attempt to revive the Honeycomb tablets after the Xoom got an unexpectedly cold response from users. The A500 sells at $450 to keep the price less than that of the lowest configured iPad 2. We suggest Acer keeps the price of the 3G version competitive as well to make it even more alluring.
