Acer Iconia Tab A200 Now Selling in the US
While it arrived a week later from its original January 15 schedule, Acer has finally tarted selling the Iconia Tab A200 in the US. Now, buyers can have the 16GB model for $349.99 at BestBuy. No one can actually tell what caused the delay, but it seems that the company have ran into some sort of distribution problems.
While the Iconia Tab A200 was announced to be available at the beginning of this year, Acer said that it will come in two colors. The metallic grey version is the one that’s seen on Best Buy, while the other will come with a red and back scheme.
At the heart of this tablet sits an Nvidia Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip (SoC) device, with dual processing cores at 1GHz, paired with 1GB of RAM. And in case the provided storage isn’t enough, the tablet also comes with an additional microSD card slot that can extend the total data storage capacity up to 32GB.
The Iconia Tab A200 weights 700g (1.54 pounds), while its 10.1-inch display sports a native resolution of 1280×800 pixels. The tablet comes pre-installed with the 3.2 version of the Android OS Honeycomb as well as Acer specific apps. The slate will also get an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich anytime in the future.
Acer Iconia Tab A200 also has an 8GB version that’s thought to carry a $329.99 price tag. However, it wasn’t spotted anywhere online yet.
