Acer has announced the ICONIA TAB A200, a new member of its ICONIA Android tablet family. The A200 features a 10.1-inch, WXGA resolution display and is powered by the familiar 1GHz, dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.
The ICONIA TAB A200 is your typical Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet, as it has the usual 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel screen, dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and 1GB of RAM. Acer is offering it with either 8 or 16GB of internal storage, and customers will be able to purchase the A200 in either Titanium Grey or Metallic Red color options. The back of the tablet features a soft-touch finish and does not have a rear-facing camera, though a 2 megapixel shooter is up front for video calls. The A200 is expected to last for 8 hours of continuous video playback with its built-in 3260mAh battery. The tablet is not the slimmest on the market, as it measures 260mm x 175mm x 12.4mm (10.24in x 6.89in x 0.49in) and weighs 720g (25.4oz, 1.59lbs).
Though the ICONIA TAB A200 is launching with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, Acer promises that an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be available early next year. The tablet is expected to ship in markets around the world soon, but Acer has yet to announce any pricing information.
