Acer Iconia Tab A200 Android tablet down to £149

UK Retailer Carphone Warehouse is selling the Acer Iconia Tab A200 tablet for a mere £149 including delivery which is more than a decent price for a dual-core tablet with a large display and Android 4.0 ICS.

The device comes with a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM, a massive 32GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), a 10.1in display with a 1,280 x 800 resolution, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a USB port, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera and Android 4.0 ICS.

Other features include GPS, a 3,260mAh battery that can power the tablet for up to nine hours, a weight of 700g and a thickness of 12.4mm.

The A200 is essentially a bigger version of the 7in Acer Iconia A100 tablet. Compared to the Google Nexus 7 tablet, it lacks the additional three-cores found on the Tegra 3 but gets a bigger display, twice the amount of memory and storage, a slightly lower price and a microSD card slot.

As it stands, the A200 is probably the best value for money large display tablet on the market. Acer is expected to launch a number of tablets at MWC next month based on the Tegra 4 and on Mediatek parts.
