Acer Iconia Tab A500 is now available at Best Buy

Options have been limited for months now, and it is definitely exciting to see that the tablet competition is actually beginning, with more devices being released. One of the main Honeycomb competitors is the Acer Iconia Tab A500, which was given an official price and release date earlier this month, and as expected, it is now available for purchase exclusively through Best Buy.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 Specification:

  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • 10.1-inch 1280×800 TFT WXGA display
  • NVIDIA Tegra 250 Cortex A9 1GHz processor (dual-core)
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 16 GB / microSD supporting up to 32 GB cards
  • 5 MP rear-facing camera / 2 MP front-facing camera
  • Two 3260 mAh Li-polymer batteries
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, bluetooth, and GPS
  • For $449.99, these specs are not disappointing at all. The Eee Pad Transformer is also releasing tomorrow (April 26), starting at a price of $400, so options for the budget conscious are now looking great! Either way, we thought it would be a good idea to remind you that this tablet is now available. It has been more than 2 weeks since we talked about this, and a lot happens in two weeks of Android news.

    What do you guys think? Are you purchasing Acer’s bad boy? Do you prefer this or the Transformer? Are you waiting for another manufacturer? Don’t forget to check out the video that Acer has put together for us, which is posted below, along with some pictures of the device.

      I pre-ordered mine on April 11th. I’m super excited about this tablet. I remember when Android Tabs first hit the market, and I was very upset on how much they lacked in compared to the iPad, but this tablet is making a good battle against Apple. I love Android and I always will. This will be an even greater device once the App Market gets more tablet optimized apps. A killer tablet for a killer cheap price, what more could you want? :D
