Acer Iconia Tab A500 Scheduled for April 24 Launch

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is a really long name for a 10 inch tablet, but it’s still an icon with tablets when it comes to features and price. Acer isn’t well known in the field of tablets, and although this isn’t it’s first tablet, they haven’t made a mark yet in the fast growing field. With the launch of the Iconia Tab A500 things may turn out to be a little different as this is a really well manufactured quality product from software with decent hardware specs.

Acer announced in a Press Release yesterday, that they will launch this tablet on the 24th of April in stores and online sites worldwide. The Acer Iconia Tab A500 with Wi-Fi will be the first one to be launched, although pre-orders for this device has already begun on Best Buy. The tablet has a good hardware configuration, but what is most striking is that it will be running on the tablet optimized Android Honeycomb 3.0 operating system. Another amazing feature is of course it’s price, which you’ll find at the end of this post.

Specifications of the Acer Iconia Tab A500:

  • 10.1 inch 1280×800 WXGA Capacitive Touchscreen display
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
  • Nvidia Tegra Dual-core processor 250, 1GHz and 1GB DDR2 RAM
  • 16 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD up to 32GB
  • A front facing 2 megapixel web camera and a rear facing 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash
  • Wi-Fi enabled, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, USB, G-sensor, E-compass, gyrometer and more.

The Iconia Tab isn’t a bad looker either, it is made of Aluminum and has a metallic finish that gives it an attractive appeal. See you for yourself in the picture below!!

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is currently, as I said before, is available for pre-order on Best Buy online store for an amazing price of $449 and yes you get the tablet too. The pricing is amazing, when you compare it to the Motorola Xoom or Apple iPad 2 as it also has similar hardware specifications. It will be available for pre-order on other online stores beginning April 14.
