Price Of Acer Iconia A100 Tablet Reduced To £199

The Acer Iconia A100 tablet, which was released last year at Mobile World Congress, can now be purchased from as little as £199.

The device has a 7-inch 1,024 by 600 pixels display, which gives it a higher pixel density and picture sharpness compared to other bigger tablets.

Like other Android tablets, it runs on the ubiquitous Nvidia Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz with 512MB RAM and 8GB onboard storage.

There's Bluetooth, a front facing two megapixel camera, a rear five megapixel one, Wi-FI, Bluetooth 3.0, a microSD card slot, a 1530mAh battery and one year warranty.

Oddly enough, the tablet is relatively thick at 13.1mm and weighs 450g, not much lighter than the bigger 10-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Acer included its own set of applications like Gamezone and its own user interface on top of Android 3.2 Honeycomb (Why not read 4 Things Acer Should Do To Improve The Acer Iconia A100 Tablet)

The taiwanese company has yet to release a follow up to the A100 despite pushing two 10.1-inch models on the market since the beginning of the year.
