After a long hiatus, Acer is back in the tablet scene with the A200, a supposed cheaper variant to the A500. The tablet is apparently already shipping in some countries, probably to cash in on the holiday rush and will make it to the rest of the world, early next year. The A200 is currently running Honeycomb, but will be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich treatment later on.
Do we really need a cheaper A500?
Other than a slight design change and a bit more girth, it looks almost identical to the A500. The 10.1-inch tablet runs Nvidia’s Tegra 2 (sorry guys, no Kal-El), along with 1GB of RAM. Acer will offer it in two storage capacities, 8GB and 16GB and will also come equipped with a microSD card slot. The onboard 3260mAh battery is said to provide 8hrs of battery life, during video playback. The rear camera has been dropped, probably to make it cheaper, and we only have a front 2MP camera. The tablet will come pre-loaded with apps as well as the new Acer Ring Launcher. Check out the quick video demo below.
