The Acer Iconia Tab A500 Android 3.0 Honeycomb is now available through retailer Best Buy in the U.S. for the price of $450, making it one of the more affordable Honeycomb tablets on the market today. The dual-core Tegra 2-powered slate is cheaper than the $600 price tag of the WiFi-only Motorola Xoom; however, unlike the 32 GB of built-in storage, the Iconia Tab A500 will come with 16 GB of storage and will support a memory card for an additional 32 GB of optional memory.
The WiFi-only slate is available through Best Buy and users can either check to see if their local Best Buy location stocks the tablet or order it through the retailer’s webpage.
At CES earlier this year, Acer also announced a 3G variant of the Iconia Tab A500 for AT&T’s network for those requiring built-in mobile broadband connectivity. The model that’s currently available via Best Buy is the WiFi-only model.
