acer-iconia-tab-a200.jpgAcer have finally made the much-leaked Iconia Tab A200 tablet official, revealing the specs and features that their latest Android slate will offer.

A 10.1 inch device with a screen resolution of 1280 x 800, it’s running Android Honeycomb off a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. 1GB of RAM should keep things ticking over quite nicely, while a front-facing 2MP camera is onboard for video chatting.

The Iconia Tab A200 will also feature the Acer Ring UI function. A small, round pop-up menu, it allows for the quick-booting of apps through a shortcut-loaded dial.

Though early shipments of the tablet will be loaded with the Honeycomb version of Google’s Android OS installed, an update to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich build will be available soon after launch. Shipments of the tablet expected to be ready by January will come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed.

Expect to see it instores at the start of 2012, sometime within the first quarter.

  • Acer aconia a700: 1920×1200 resolution, 2gb ram, tegra 3. Release: q1 2012

    Why would anyone buy this now? Sounds like they are targeting the uneducated ipad-weilding portion of the market.
