Acer Iconia Tab A200 Android tablet
Friday, 02 December 2011 00:19

Another day, another Android tablet. This time it's Acer's Iconia Tab A200, a 10.1in Android tablet that the company describes as "very affordable".
• Acer Iconia A500 Android tablet review
• Acer Iconia A100 Android tablet review
If you're hoping the Acer Iconia Tab A200 offers something different than the wealth of its competitors, you're going to be disappointed. It has the same sized 10.1in screen as most other Android tablets, runs the now standard 1GHz dual-core processor, and also has a front-facing 2-megapixel camera. In fact there's nothing remarkable at all about the Iconia Tab A200 on paper.
However, Acer is hoping to win over consumers with what it says is a "very affordable price". The Iconia Tab A200 will retail for $349 — significantly cheaper than most of its rivals. Most tablets with similar specifications retail for over $500 in Australia, though prices are slowly beginning to drop.
For less than $350 you'll get a tablet that does what most other Android tablets will, though you'll have to live without 3G connectivity (the Iconia A200 is a Wi-Fi only tablet) and a HDMI-out port. You do get a full-sized USB port and a microSD card slot for extra storage, which are both nice inclusions at this price. The microSD is particularly welcomed, as the Iconia Tab A200 only has 8GB of internal memory. There's also a 16GB model available, but we're waiting for clarification from Acer about its asking price.
Acer says the Iconia Tab A200 comes with company's "ring interface". This software allows users to set quick shortcuts to commonly used apps, as well as a screenshot feature which isn't normally included on the standard Android Honeycomb software.
The Acer Iconia Tab A200 will initially ship with the 3.2 Honeycomb version of Google's Android software for tablets, but Acer says the tablet is "Ice Cream Sandwich ready". The company has promised to upgrade the Iconia Tab A200 to Android 4.0 (ICS) from January 2012. Tablets shipped after this date will come pre-loaded with the Ice Cream Sandwich software.
