Acer Iconia A200 Tab available now for $349

Coming in at a pretty fair price is Acer's latest entry into the ever-growing Android tablet market. This is the Acer Iconia Tab A200 and along with it comes some slightly better looks and a thinner design than their first attempt at a tablet. The A500 and A100 looked quite similar but were a little chunky. Acer aims to change that with this new tablet although its nothing compared to the A700 we've seen lately.

There isn't really anything new here and the A200 has a wrap sheet like most other tablets available today. That consists of a 10.1" display with a 1280 x 800 resolution and is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. This is more of a cousin to their first round of tablets, rather than a second generation -- although it is a bit thinner.

This Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet is available today both in-stores and online from Best Buy and will run you a pretty $349 to take home. We've heard a few reports of updates and expect a possible upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich sometime in February -- making this even more appealing to potential buyers. This is one of the more affordable 10" tablets around -- will you be buying one?

    Not a compelling enough reason to ditch my A500, especially with ICS coming any day now. Quad core? Maybe. Plus, I have become spoiled by the attention to detail on my EVO View and the A500 is quite Spartan in comparison. I think I would spring a few more bucks for a Transformer Prime or wait on the nextgen HTC which is sure to be cheaper. Now, I am delighted with my 7″ View which I have found is the perfect size.

    There is no digital camera on it so I’m not going to get it. I rather get the A500.

      Ahem…… Acer Iconia a500 currently available @ Walmart online for $348. You can also get it for a dollar more @ Toysrus online. Now why would anyone settle for a a200 with less features for the same price? This is a no brainer! ;o)~

      The A200 requires a smart phone to act as hotspot as there is no 3G on the tablet.
      Therefore u can use the smartphone for your photographs and store them on the tablet.
