Acer A501 Iconia Tab 4G pre-orders start at Amazon for $499.99
AT&T announced that it would carry the Acer A501 Iconia Tab 4G back in March. Since then, however, the only other thing that we heard about the AT&T-bound A501 was that it may also get a version with 64 GB of internal storage space.
The A501 Iconia Tab has become available in the UK in the meantime, but there was still no sign of it in the US, until today.
Amazon has started taking pre-orders for the tablet, and it asks a pretty cool $499.99 for it (you also get free shipping). Now considering that this is a full-fledged 10.1-inch Android Honeycomb tablet and that it comes with ’4G’ support, that’s a neat price. Unfortunately, the well known retailer does not currently list a projected shipping date for the Iconia Tab. So if you want to be among the first to have one, you’re going to have to pre-order it without knowing when it will arrive at your doorstep. An inconvenience, yes, but for Android tablet fans everywhere it may just be a risk worth taking. You decide.
The Acer A501 Iconia Tab 4G has a 1 GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space further expandable via microSD cards, a 10.1-inch 1280×800 touchscreen, HSPA+ support, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, HDMI out, two cameras, and a 3260 mAh battery.
