The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is one of the best known and best-selling Android Honeycomb tablets so far, and it has been available in the UK for quite a while. Keep in mind though that the A500 is the Wi-Fi-only version of Acer’s 10-inch tablet. There’s also a 3G-enabled (that’s ’4G’ for our American readers) model from Acer called Iconia Tab A501. AT&T has, in fact, announced that it will sell the A501 starting this summer.
But before that happens, the Iconia Tab A501 has become available in the UK. The 3G tablet can now be bought from well known independent third party gadget retalier Clove. It offers the Acer Iconia Tab A501 for £534, VAT included. That’s £15 cheaper than Acer’s recommended retail price for this model, so it’s a decent deal.
Back when Acer announced pricing for its Iconia Tab line in the UK, the A501 was said to be £100 more than its Wi-Fi-only sibling. However, since then Acer has launched a 16 GB version of the Wi-Fi-only A500, and it goes for just £349.99. Compared to that, the 3G Acer Iconia Tab A501 is pretty expensive, then again it does allow you to connect to the Internet regardless of whether you have a Wi-Fi connection around or not, and it’s also got 32 GB of internal storage space.
Other specs of the tablet include a 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch 1280×800 capacitive touchscreen, microSD card support, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a secondary front-facing 2 MP camera for video calls, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 6500 mAh battery. It weighs 777 grams and runs Android Honeycomb.
To get one, just head over to Clove now and place your order.
