Fri, 07/29/2011 - 12:59 -- Marshall Walker

It looks like the delay is almost over, and the long awaited Acer ICONIA TAB A100 will be making its way to the U.S. sometime next month. A few stores like Excalibur PC have already started accepting pre-orders for the device, with prices ranging from around $329 to $390.

But it's still a good sign that things are moving forward for Acer, and that an August release is likely.


The 7-inch tablet features a 1024×600 pixel display and is believed to be shipping with Honeycomb 3.2. It has a 1GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 8GB of internal storage, a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera and front-facing 2-megapixel camera.
