Nothing big and fancy here, just another new Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core tablet with a 10 inch display… This one is the Acer Iconia Tab A200, that just been officially launched, after some time of speculation and leaked pictures. This device ships with Honeycomb, but an Ice Cream Sandwich update is already promised.
Acer is saying that the shipments of the slate started in November in some countries and the slate comes with Android 3.2. The Iconia Tab A200 comes with a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8/16GB for storage and a 12.4mm waistline. These are usual specs, that don’t surprise anyone any more, considering we have 8.3mm thick quad core tablets out there, like the Transformer Prime.
The new Iconia Tab offers 400 hours of standby time and 8 hours of video playback, courtesy of a 3260 mAh battery. The screen resolution is 1280 x 800 and the device tends to feel a bit heavy at 800 grams, I have to be honest. There’s also some software customization going on here, thanks to the Acer Ring UI layer. This one improves multitasking, allowing the user to access apps from any screen more easily. There’s also a screenshot feature, that even has the option of capturing smiling faces in video calls.
The feature list is completed by a full size USB port, a microSD card slot and a 2 megapixel front camera for web chats. No back whatsoever is present…
