Acer launches Iconia Tab A200 After weeks of speculation, Acer has officially launched their ICONIA TAB A200, a slightly outdated tablet with Honeycomb and a Tegra 2 dual-core processor.
Nicely, the tablet will be upgraded to Android 4.0 late next month.

The device has 1GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB of storage, is a thick 12.4 mm, has a resolution of 1280 x 800 and a large 3260mAh battery.

Additionally, Acer has added its "Acer Ring" UI to Android, which adds better multi-tasking features and screenshot capabilities.

Finally, the tablet has a 2MP front-side camera and full USB port next to a microSD slot.

a 3260mAh battery in a tablet is not large.. its average by tablet standards...!

And as for the Tegra 2, which is not capable of 1080p play back im going to have to wait until the Tegra 4 before i consider one.

And before someone flames me, i know the screen is not 1080p, but who wants to re-encode all their 1080p content so they can watch it the tablet.

This is not a knock at acer (well the battery part it), as all the offerings are tegra 2 at the mo :(

Too bad that this tablet is already outdated by the Transformer Prime due out later this month, which has Tegra 3.

plus the prime has a Battery Capacity of 6579 mAh :) i know which one im considering..!

Ok the acer is not that bad spec at all, but to me having native 1080p x264 high profile play back is what ive been waiting for.
