Acer’s Iconia Tab A100 7-inch Honeycomb tablet gets bargain pricing

Acer left the Iconia Tab A100 out of the loop when the company priced and dated the A500 and W500 last month, but we're not sure why; the 7-inch Honeycomb slate is perhaps the best deal of them all. Fresh to Amazon UK, the Tegra 2 based A100 is expected to arrive on April 20, and is priced at just £299.99 ($485).

That's the same price as Samsung asks for the WiFi-only Galaxy Tab, which only has a single-core processor, as well as the Dell Streak 7, which has 3G but a lower-resolution, WVGA touchscreen and doesn't (yet) run Android 3.0. You'll have to make do with just 8GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM, but there's a memory card slot to address one of those issues at least.

If the 8.9- and 10.1-inch tablets we're seeing from Samsung, Motorola and others are simply too big for your bag or (oversized) pockets, then the 7-inch Iconia Tab A100 may fit the bill. No word on US pricing as yet, though we're expecting it to be even cheaper than the $485 a direct conversion suggests.

    Not really a bargain with that amount of RAM. Doubt you’ll get very far with 512kb. Probably a typo

    Who posted that listing?

    512KB? 8GB HDD?

    Also you shouldn’t compare prices with the Galaxy Tab or Streak 7 both devices are vastly overpriced, especially the Streak 7 that thing should cost no more than $150/£150.
