Acer Iconia Tab A200 now available in the U.S.
The thin and sleek Acer Iconia Tab A200 is now available in certain brick-and-mortar stores in the United States. The model is the successor to the Iconia Tab A100, a 7-inch offering with many of the same features but in a smaller screen size.
Similar to the Tab A100, the 10.1-inch Tab A200 includes a Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, front-and-rear cameras, Bluetooth, microSD card reader and a micro USB port. However, since the Tab A200 is physically larger, it is noticeably heavier than the Tab A200 (1.54 pounds vs. 0.919 pounds) but is at the same time just as thick at about 0.5 inches.
The tablet ships with Android Honeycomb, so users shouldn’t expect ICS out of the box just yet. Still, according to Laptoping, the A200 should be receiving the Android 4.0 update sometime next month.
The Acer Iconia Tab A200 can now be ordered online through Staples for $350. The retailer currently only offers one gray model with a 16GB SSD, although the official Acer site lists 8GB and 16GB models for $330 and $350, respectively, each in gray or red color options.
