After many months since it was first unveiled, the Acer Iconia Tab A100 is slowly becoming available in more and more markets worldwide. Just recently it was released in the UK and Canada, and it now looks set to make it to Australia as well.
Unfortunately we can’t tell you when exactly that will happen. But it’s coming to Australia pretty soon, since Acer already announced its pricing over there. And it won’t come cheap.
For some reason, only the version with 8 GB of built-in storage will make its way down under. And it will cost $479. It’s unclear if this is going to be a Wi-Fi-only device or one to come with 3G connectivity as well, but since we haven’t yet seen a 3G version of the A100 anywhere, we’re betting it’s the former. Which makes this a pretty expensive tablet.
It’s got a 1 GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 7-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash, a secondary front-facing 2 MP camera, 512 MB of RAM, microSD card support, and Bluetooth. It weighs 470 grams and runs Android Honeycomb.
