Acer Unveils Iconia Tab A200, Promises Ice Cream Sandwich
While the new year may bring with it resolutions of healthier diets and lifestyle, Acer’s recently unveiled Iconia Tab A200 will go the opposite as it is promised a healthy consumption of Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS come January 2012. The budget-friendly tablet eschews cutting edge specs, like NVIDIA’s latest quad-core Tegra 3 processor with multi-core graphics, in favor of keeping things more affordable with a dual-core Tegra 2 chipset.
The Iconia Tab A200 will be a 10.1-inch slate will launch with Android 3.2 Honeycomb. The slates have already begun shipping to select countries, according to Acer, and will pack in a custom UI called the Acer Ring UI. There’s also an easy option for capturing screenshots as well.
The tablet will pack in a micro SDHC card slot for expansion along side either 8 GB or 16 GB of on-board storage, a full USB slot, and 1 GB RAM. The battery is good for 8 hours of continuous video playback. The Iconia Tab A200 will have a front-facing 2-megapixel camera for video calls and self-portraits, but omits a rear-facing camera to keep costs down.
