The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is one of the cheapest Honeycomb tablets out there, priced at $450 and launched not so long ago. Now, it turns out that this dual core slate was rooted by the XDA Developers folks, so we expect custom ROMs and hacks to descend upon us soon, just like they did for Motorola Xoom.

In the meantime, we remind you that for $150 less than the Xoom you can get the Iconia Tab A500, with a 10.1 inch touch display, a 1GHz CPU, WIFi, GPS, HDMI out, 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage. The device comes with a brushed aluminum finish and gray plastics, for a more attractive build and look. What tablet will be rooted next?
