After seeing a great deal of success with their Android Honeycomb based A500 Iconia Tablet, Acer has decided to release a cheaper model with half the storage.
Until now there has been a 32GB Wi-Fi only model available on European and US markets, but Acer have now seen an opportunity to release a cheaper model with 16GB storage. With the cut in storage capacity comes a much welcomed cut in price – £100 to be precise.
The 32GB model has been on sale in the UK since April, priced at £450 and in direct competition with the Motorola Xoom. Reviews for the device have been impressive, as have sales according to Acer.
As of now there will be a 16GB model available in the UK, priced at £349.99. All the other specifications stay exactly the same, meaning you’ll get Android Honeycomb, a 10.1-inch screen, Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, HDMI out, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, front-facing camera, rear 5MP camera and Flash capabilities.
