Owners of the Iconia Tab A200 tablet are able to unwrap Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) today as Acer begins pushing out an Android 4.0 update to its 10.1-inch, Tegra 2-powered slate. The A200 is the first of several Iconia Tab tablets that Acer plans to upgrade in the near-future. The 7-inch A100 and 10.1-inch A500 will both be treated to ICS in April, Acer announced today.
The days of having to spend a small fortune in order to have a tablet that doesn't suck are over. With the introduction of the Iconia Tab A200, Acer throws its hat into the ring of low(er) cost slates. It's priced at $330, and while that's higher than Amazon's Kindle Fire ($199) and Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet ($249), the A200 is a full-size slate measuring 10.1 inches with a promised upgrade path to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
Acer tells us its upcoming Iconia Tab A200 will debut "at an affordable price," a claim that's impossible to substantiate until the company actually announces how much it will cost (which it hasn't). What we do know, however, is that it will come packing an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) out of the gate in...November? Perhaps Acer has discovered time travel.
