The ides of January bring a new addition to the Iconia line

1581

In the hubbub of price reductions, fire sales, sub $200 tablets masquerading as E-Readers, $100 dollar Chinese knockoffs, and other various developments making us go tablet crazy, I must say that this is something that, while it would be quite easy to overlook, it stands out from the rest after a second glance.

Acer will, in January, be adding the Iconia A200 to the already popular Iconia clan. Let’s get to the best bits first: it boasts a full 10.1-inch HD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, Honeycomb (with the promise of an ICS update shortly after launch), a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 2MP front-facing camera, 8 hours of battery life, a MicroSD card slot, and the full-sized USB port found on the other members of the Iconia family. I can’t tell you how mind-bogglingly useful having a USB port on a tablet is.

The A200 will also be shipped with a bit of Acer bloatware, namely Acer Clear Fi (their own media sharing software) and something called Acer Ring, which is meant to help users get used to their apps.

So what do you guys think? Personally, I’m psyched to see an affordable tablet with such potential landing at the beginning of this year, and at a price that your New Year’s resolved budget will allow for. Anyone planning to pick one up when it drops? Leave a comment below! The full press release can also be found below.

The new Acer Iconia Tab A200 tablet enables customers to interact with and enjoy technology in ways that are both truly natural and exciting. Loaded with the latest edition of Android™ Honeycomb™ 3.2 operating system, the Iconia Tab A200 is user-friendly and extremely interactive with resizable app widgets and fun features the whole family can enjoy. The Iconia Tab A200 also comes with a free upgrade to Android 4.0 (known as Ice Cream Sandwich), which will be available in mid-February.

“The Acer Iconia Tab family of tablets is an excellent example of Acer’s ability to deliver high-performance, full-function mobile devices at unbeatable values,” said Eric Ackerson, senior product marketing manager for Acer America. “Acer brings the Iconia Tab A200 to consumers at an affordable price, without making sacrifices on key tablet features such as expansion, connectivity to other devices, HD displays and cameras.”

A two megapixel front-facing web camera enables face-to-face chats or quick snaps for still photos. For an enhanced social networking experience, the Iconia Tab A200 includes Acer SocialJogger, which consolidates Facebook, Twitter and more into one spot.

The Iconia Tab A200 improves multitasking with the unique interactive Acer Ring interface, allowing users to customize their tablet experience by putting their most commonly used applications into one easy spot. Users can launch the ring by tapping the double circle located in the system bar, opening a series of key apps, settings, bookmarks or contextual menu options. The tablet also features Screenshot, which quickly captures web images, articles, Google Maps and even smiling faces from video calls. Screenshot can be used in any app for maximum convenience.

Acer clear.fi is installed on the Acer Iconia Tab A200 to connect with any other DLNA-compliant device to quickly and easily share digital medai.

    • Ignore my last comment.  I thought the original Iconia was going for the same price as well.  Didn’t realize this was almost $100 off.
