SlashGear got their first formal look at the Acer Iconia Tab A500, the very first 7-inch tablet running Android 3.2 Honeycomb on the market - and indeed the first 7-inch tablet running any version of Honeycomb on the market, when you think about it. The box for this A100 tablet looks essentially the same as the A500 bigger brother, from the way the top opens to how the the device sits in the cardboard. Holding this device in your hands feels very similar to holding a very tiny version of the A500 version while certainly more refined than the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch - rounded corners and everything.
coming in August and it has finally arrived. It was officially announced this morning and you can get all the details here. Lucky for you we already have one and decided to run a few performance benchmarks to help our readers make up their minds.

announced in February but quickly delayed due to Honeycomb incompatibility.
incompatibility with Honeycomb? Nay says Walmart, we'll release it no matter what! We've got it on sale right this second, says they, and noone will stop us!
on the case. At that time it appeared that the phone would indeed be released by May 2011 (that's what time it is now,) but newest news says that a delay is occurring because Acer needs parts from Japanese factories that just aren't in commission at the moment.
Iconia Tab A500), have noted that Acer is blaming incompatibility issues with Honeycomb on a 7-inch device for their delay in launch. As you know, the Acer Iconia Tab A100 was supposed to be launched back on May 14th along with the 101 (the 3G version) - that was nixed! Of course we're all waiting for this release because this set o' tablets is going to be bargain priced and the A500 isn't half bad, you know what I mean?
