Acer has officially announced a new 10.1-inch display sporting Iconia Tab A200 tablet. The 8 GB version of the new Acer Iconia Tab A200 tablet will be sold for $330 (Rs 17,419) while its 16 GB model will be available for $350 (Rs 18,474) in the USA from 15 January.
However, Acer is yet to decide on the release of the tablet in India, a spokesperson of the company told The Mobile Indian.
Housing a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, the new Iconia Tab A200 will run Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet operating system. Its 10.1-inch touchscreen display supports 1280×800 pixel resolution natively. Under the hood, the tablet houses a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC mobile chipset and an integrated low-power GeForce graphic chip capable of 1080p HD playback. Acer has packed 1 GB of memory to run all the applications, multimedia and the OS smoothly.
In the front, Acer has added 2 megapixel camera that is said to be capable of performing HD video chats. Surprisingly, this 10.1-inch tablet doesn’t feature any secondary camera at the back. By default, the Acer Iconia Tab A200 will run Android 3.2 Honeycomb with Acer 4.0 UI layered on top of it. Acer promises to release the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the tablet in February.
Of course the on-board storage is not enough and hence the tablet offers memory card slot. For physical connectivity, the tablet includes a full USB 2.0 port and there by pushing the thickness of the tablet to 12.4mm.
The Iconia Tab A200 doesn’t offer SIM slot and is entirely dependent on the WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) for Internet connectivity. The tablet also has Bluetooth 2.1 and also integrates a GPS module for location based services. For good audio playback, the tablet has a dual grill of speakers at the bottom on the backside. Acer has packed a 3260 mAh lithium polymer battery that promises 10 hours of talk time.
This tablet falls into an affordable segment and hence might be an ideal choice for willing consumers.
