Add another tablet to the list of available Android 3.0 devices as the Acer Iconia Tab A500 is now ready for consumer hands in the U.S.
The 10.1-inch Iconia A500 tablet features a 1GHz Tegra 2 APU, 1280x800 resolution screen, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 16GB SSD, 8-hour battery life, HDMI, micro USB, microSD slot, and front and rear cameras. While Acer is well known for its budget-lined netbooks, the Iconia A500 appears to be delivering specs and features not normally found for a sub $500 tablet.
A 4G variant of the Iconia Tab A500 will also see a release in the U.S. later this year for the AT&T network. An exact launch date is still unknown, but should be available sometime this summer. In Europe, the tablet will be renamed to the Liberty Tab for Packard Bell.
We reported about a month ago on the availability and pre-order status of the Iconia A500. The previously announced price fortunately remains unchanged, as $450 for the tablet is lower than expected, especially given the impressive specs. The tablet can be purchased here on Amazon.
