Android tablets are quickly becoming a dime a dozen, but at least they’re getting cheaper. Acer has just taken the wraps off its latest Iconia device, the A200. Exclusive to Harvey Norman, the A200 is all set for an Ice Cream Sandwich update next month.
Despite shipping with Honeycomb on board, Acer has promised from the start to upgrade the OS to ICS in January 2012. Considering our proximity to Christmas, that’s probably not too bad a deal.
Specs-wise, the A200 has a 10.1-inch touchscreen, 1GHz dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, built in GPS, 3260mAh battery and weighs in at 720 grams. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Exchange support are all standard.
Available in both 8GB and 16GB flavours, pricing starts at $349, which isn’t all that bad, really. Of course, it’s significantly heavier than some other tablets, but if you’re keen to get some early access to ICS and don’t want to spend too much cash, this could be a good starting point.
