Acer Ships Iconia Tab A500 Honeycomb Tablet

Earlier this month, we told you the Acer Iconia Tab A500, the company's first 10.1-inch tablet in the new Acer Iconia family, would be available starting April 24. As promised, Acer has delivered this Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablet on schedule.

As you'll recall, the Iconia Tab A500 supports a resolution of 1280×800 on its 10.1-inch screen. The tablet is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 250 1GHz dual-core processor. It has 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash storage. There's also a microSD slot for additional storage. You'll find a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera on this tablet.

All in all, the Iconia Tab A500 has many similar hardware features to the Motorola Xoom, though Acer has the benefit of a lower price (about $450) and also features a brushed aluminum back.

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is available at Best Buy.

I'm still backing the asus, but I totally agree @omegadraco this is better than the htc.

I love my HTC phone, but I agree, they screwed up on their 1st tablet attempt. Hope they do better on a 10" one. And yes, I have seen the Asus, and it looks pretty wicked. Hopefully the 3g capable ones come out soon. I have an Ipad, and can't wait to get rid of it. However, AT&T's pricing on the 250 megs, is only $15, and, it's very nice to have when you need/want it. Would love seeing an Asus one on AT&T. I love the keyboard option.

How much you wanna bet they get sued by Apple for copying their aluminum backing :P

Looks great! I'd love to have this tablet, especially since the price is lower than the Xoom, which I've been eying.

Nice! Wish it had more RAM to support higher resoloution video?

yet with the back and the outer shell, it kinda looks like it is just a laptop cut in half.

I was reading an article on the TI A5 earlier. This market is going to explode. Not really that we have not seen it yet as it already is, but it grows and changes even faster than the PC market. The new A5+A4 setup there talking about will host 4 cameras at once in a platform like a smart phone (2 A5+2 A4). 4 dimensional mobile graphics sounds like virtual reality materials to me.
