New Acer Iconia Gingerbread A501 tablet arrives

On-line mobile phone retailer Clove has taken stock of the latest Acer Iconia Android tablet and without just WIFI capabilities, as the A501 arrives with 3G abilities too.

Acer’s WIFI-only Iconia Tab A500 made its public debut at Mobile World Congress this year in Barcelona, where the 32GB model went on sale mid-March and also hit the headlines of late, where it received a £100 price cut along with a storage cut to 16GB, from 32GB.

Iconia Tab A501 runs from Google’s mobile OS, which is especially geared up for tablets in Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.0, along with various additions to the platform by Acer - such as their own UI and the media sharing system.

The tablet arrives with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 WXGA capacitive touch screen, running from a Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core cortex A9 1GHz processor, with a 5 megapixel camera and 2MP variant on the front, a microHDMI port, 32GB of storage capacity with access to WIFI and 3G networks for internet access.

Clove is retailing the Acer Iconia Tab A501 for £534 SIM free and unlocked, where the WIFI only version is still priced around £449.99 and £349.99 for the 16GB variant.
