Acer Iconia Tab A100 Aussie Pricing, 8GB Only

Acer's announced local pricing for the Iconia Tab A100, as well as announcing that the 16GB version won't make its way to Australian shores. First of all, the pricing. The 8GB Iconia Tab A100 will cost $479, a rather hefty premium over the $US330 asking price, and a pretty clear indication that Acer's sticking to a rigid pricing strategy no matter what its rivals do. The US wasn't that thrilled with the A100 in any case, and with Samsung's overnight announcement of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, this might be a tablet best left on the shelf.


    Total rip off. I'll take my 32gb touchpad for a 3rd of the price any day of the week

    I saw on Whirlpool that the A500 16G wifi is going for around $370 and lower

      Oops didn't see your comment there!

    No Sale.

    8gb isn't even close to being enough for my purposes.. what were they thinking.

    And the price? Are you sure that's an Acer and not an Apple?

    Good luck with that, Acer...

    I believe that buggy whip manufacturers also had a rigid pricing strategy.

    Might as well just get the $386 16GB WiFi-only Acer A500 from Harvey Norman or Officeworks..

    Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I’ll complain that you simply have copied materials from an additional supply
