Acer have just pushed out a press release ahead of CES 2012, announcing that their Tegra 2 tablet computer, the Acer Iconia Tab A200 will go on sale in the U.S from January 15th from the very attractive price of $329.
The 10-inch Acer Tab A200 has a 1280 x 800 pixel display and is powered by the 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor. While the tablet will initially start to ship on the 15th running Google Android 3.2 Honey comb, tech heads won’t have to worry about being behind the game, as Acer has already said that they will offer a free upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Acer A200.
While the Acer Tab A200 might not be powered by the very latest Tegra 3 quad core processor, it offers a great tablet at a very attractive price. The Acer A200 with 8GB of storage space costs just $329, while the 16GB model will cost just $20 more at $349. But as the A200 also features a microSD card slot, you can always upgrade the storage capacity using a cheap microSD card. Along with the card slot, it also has a micro-USB port, a full sized port, and a single front facing 2MP camera, perfect for video conferencing.
If you have your heart set on the very latest Tegra 3 quad core powered tablet, there are quite solid rumors of the Acer Iconia Tab A700 which is powered by the Tegra 3. Currently no pricing or release date are known, but we will hopefully know this by the end of next week!
