We’ve already seen Acer’s newest Android-powered tablet, the Iconia Tab A200 in a video format, but now we get to see how the device stacks up against the competition after it’s officially announced. Acer has announced the device, saying that the tablet “comes at a very affordable price.” Interestingly enough, as we can see from the images above, it doesn’t look like the new A200 has a rear camera.
But, what we do know, is that the A200 comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280×800. It comes with a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor under the hood, 1GB of RAM, and a microSD card slot. It will come in either an 8 or 16GB internal memory. There’s a 2MP front-facing camera. It also features a full-sized USB port.
The tablet will begin shipping with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, however beginning in January Acer will ship it with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately, there’s no word on exact pricing quite yet, but Acer does say that shipments of the new tablet have already begun in select countries. We’ll have to stay tuned to see where it pops up.
