Another 10.1-inch, Android Honeycomb tablet powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor has become available in the UK, a few days after it was supposed to – the Acer Iconia Tab A500. This tablet is also going to make it to the US via Verizon, and it’s an interesting entry in the tablet space, even if it’s very, very similar, spec-wise, to most of its competitors – especially the Motorola Xoom.
Where the Acer tablet wins out against Moto’s effort is price, at least in the UK for now. The Iconia Tab A500 is available for £449.99 from Dixons, whereas the comparable, Wi-Fi-only Xoom will cost you £479.99 from the likes of PC World.
Other than the price, there’s little to differentiate the Iconia Tab from the competition. As mentioned before, this is a Wi-Fi-only device, so there’s no integrated mobile data connectivity support. Its screen has a resolution of 1280×800 and is a LED-backlit LCD, it’s got a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, two USB connectors, HDMI out, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and a 2-cell battery that’s apparently good for 5 hours of use.
If you’re interested, go to Dixons now and place your order.
