New details on the tablet extrapolated from FCC reports and could be launching before this year's end

We reported last week that a new edition to the Iconia Tab A-series may be coming soon, but it is now all but confirmed as a new model has now arrived at the FCC.

The Acer Iconia Tab A200 will succeed the recently released A100, but details are still rather scarce. Fortunately, a few details are provided in the FCC SAR Test Report in the form of tablet dimensions and present antennae. The Iconia Tab A200 will likely feature a 10.1-inch screen at the very least with wireless-n and Bluetooth capabilities, based on the photo below.  Wirelessgoodness.com is also predicting that the tablet will only be about 7mm thick, which would make it even thinner than the iPad 2.

Launch dates and prices are still out of reach, but the fact that it is under testing at the FCC could mean it could be coming sooner rather than later. It would even be interesting to find out what hardware the tablet will be packing in order to compete against the new quad-core tablet that are expected to be all the rage in 2012. We await official announcements from Acer themselves, hopefully before the end of this year.
