Acer Iconia Tab A200 now available in the U.S.

The budget 10.1-inch tablet now in stock starting for $329 for an 8GB model
Allen Ngo,

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
