Acer, Asus, and LG have been showing off Android tablets for a few months, but aside from Asus most of the companies have been reluctant to spill any details about pricing. Now Spanish retailer Phone House has published an ad showing prices for 4 upcoming tablets including the Motorola XOOM, Acer Iconia A100, LG Optimus Pad, and an Asus Eee Pad.
The Acer Iconia A100 is one of the most intriguing models thanks to its relatively affordable €349 price tag. The tablet is expected to have a 7 inch display, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor. It will run Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
The LG Optimus Pad will have an 8.9 inch display, NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and a 3D camera. It will run a hefty €849.
The Asus Eee Pad tablet will cost €399. It’s not clear from the ad which model we’re looking at, but the Eee Pad Transformer with a detachable keyboard seems like a good bet. This model has a Tegra 2 processor, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS 10 inch capacitive touchscreen display, 1GB of RAM and between 16GB and 64GB of storage.
The Motorola XOOM will run €699, which is about par for the course with that model.

I meant MB of course 🙂
I imagine the 399 is the entry level model of the transformer, since it would tie up with the slides showed off at CES 2011, MWC and CEBIT. 512GB memory (upgradeable to 1GB) and 16GB of in-built storage with the keyboard/extra battery dock an optional extra.
If the Asus Eee Pad Transformer (think tablet/netbook hybrid) comes in at $399 and up it will he a hot sell. With sales and coupons I’m sure you would easily find it for $349 and it gives great versatility and functionality by having a good clamshell dock to make it into a netbook, and the price will probably drop by summer. . . starting to look very good.
