On the wrong side of the Atlantic waiting for an affordable tablet to hit the UK? All joking aside, yes the that time has almost come. As of today, the Acer Iconia Tab A200 can be ordered for shipping by January 6th 2012. If you’re keeping count, that’s a mere 10 days away. The price sails in at just under £300 pounds at £299.00. For a dual-core Tegra 2-powered tablet, that is a bargain.
Some other notable features include 1GB of RAM, a 10.1 inch screen and 8GB of internal storage. One surprising omission is the exclusion of the rear-facing camera, but seeing how most tablet makers are still choosing lower-resolution cameras to adorn the backs of their tablet devices, the loss of such a feature will probably not make you lose any sleep. Especially since holding a 10.1-inch tablet for a sub-par picture when you have an Android smartphone with a much more capable camera in your pocket seems self-defeating. In any case, if you were itchin’ for the chance to jump in the deep end of the pool with the big boys & girls, feel free to order yourself a tablet and let us know how it is when you get it.
