Acer Iconia Smart Delayed Till July Amid Japan Earthquake Aftermath

Have you heard of the new Acer Android smartphone? Nay? It's called the Acer Iconia Smart, and it's basically a phantom. Last time we heard from it, we were at Mobile World Congress 2011 and our good man Chris Davies was 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.

Acer Android / Intel Tablet Waiting in the Wings

Remember that one time when we had an awesome tablet by the name of Acer Iconia Tab A500 and we totally reviewed it FTW? That fancy bunch over at DigiTimes have done it again with their loose-lipped partners and have revealed the next step AFTER the A500, namely an Oak Trail device, and that means Intel! This tablet will supposedly run Android 3.0 (pointing toward the notion that Android 3.1 wont be rolling out to everyone as fast as predicted,) and that it'll be a 10-inch tablet retail released in July.

Acers Iconia Tab A100 misses May 14 launch, now delayed until 2H 2011

Earlier this month we were tipped that the Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet would be launching on May 14. The tablet sounds pretty good to use and we have been looking forward to it. Sadly, the tablet has now been postponed with the 14th coming and going with no A100 launch. The table has been postponed and it will be later in 2011 before it comes to stores and you can buy it. The tablet now has a 2H 2011 expected launch date.

Acer Iconia Tab A100 and A101 to launch May 14

We have talked a lot about the new Acer tablets that are coming to stores. The new tablets include the Iconia A100 and A101 tablets and both are Android 3.0 tablets. The A100 and A101 tablets are the same with the difference being the 101 has a 3G modem, and the 100 is a WiFi only tablet. The screen is a 7-inch unit with a resolution of 1024 x 600, and both use capacitive touch technology.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 deal at Best Buy

Best Buy is featuring the Acer Iconia Tab A500 in their weekly sales circular and at a pretty good price, too. The Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet is on sale for just under $450, cheaper than Motorola's XOOM, which is selling for around $600, WiFi only. It's also available now at that price, while the slightly cheaper EeePad Transformer (at $400) won't be out for another few weeks. And with our earlier report that users can root the Iconia (with a step by step guide included), the time is ripe to ask the question ... why wait?
