Acer’s latest Android tablet is now available in the US. Best Buy is selling the Acer Iconia tab A200 for $349.99

.

The A200 is a mid-range tablet with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor and Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system. It has a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display.

Acer Iconia Tab A200

If the Iconia Tab A200 had been released in 2011, it probably would have been a top-of-the-line tablet, but now it will go head-to-head with tablets that have quad-core chips, 1920 x 1200 pixel displays, and other premium features. That includes the upcoming Acer Iconia Tab A510 and A700 — which will both probably carry higher price tags than the A200.

Acer does plan to offer a software update which will bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to the tablet soon, so hopefully the software won’t feel outdated for long.

The tablet has 1GB of RAM, a 24.1Whr battery, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS and a 2MP front-facing camera. It weighs about 1.6 pounds and measures about half an inch thick.

The Best Buy model has 16GB of storage space. A cheaper model with 8GB is also expected soon.

  1. The problem here is a tablet like this gets announced and at the time the hardware match’s up with what is currently for sale. However, when it finally makes it to the US it now has to compete with the latest tablet announcements with quad core chips, etc. I’m waiting for the the CES tablets to appear. I wouldn’t pay $350 for this when better hardware for close to the same price is on the horizon. Of course better hardware is always on the horizon but Android tablets have been seriously underpowered when compared to the ipad. Android just seems to need more horsepower to get the same feeling of speed or smoothness that the iPad achieves with its processor. That applies to both phones and tablets.

    1. I think with the implementation of hardware acceleration in ICS, android should get a lot smoother
