Gizmodo Australia, whom are on the ball with Acer news, have reported that Acer have announced the official pricing of their upcoming launch (in Australia, anyway) of the Iconia Tab A100.

It will sell for $489 — $11 less than the first reported price, if you’re picky — for the 8GB version, which will be the only variant sold here, so don’t hold out for a 16GB Iconia Tab A100.

Going by what what we heard earlier in August, there will be two variants of the 8GB: Wi-Fi only and 3G. But if it’s a fixed price of $489, I’m hoping it’s for the 3G version, especially since Samsung have got their eyes set on getting back into the 7-inch tablet market with the newly announced Galaxy Tab 7.7. There’d be even more trouble for Acer if Lenovo plan on launching their sub-$200 Gingerbread tablet here. Hit the break for the specifications overview.

  • 7-inch 1024×600 (169ppi) Capacitive Display
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz Dual-Core CPU
  • Android 3.2
  • 13.1mm thick / 720 grams
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 — 3G
  • 8GB Internal Storage / 512MB RAM
  • 5MP Rear Camera (720p Video) / 2MP Front Camera
  • HDMI-out 1080p

I saw the 16GB Transformer at $427 this week. I think even Harvey Norman had it at under $490, so not sure how this is a win.

I just can’t see it selling at that price.

Especially as HN have the 10″ 16gb A500 selling for $386 at the moment.


exactly what I thought. It will have to drop under 300. That is when we (I+ozbargainers) will strike!

Only 8GB of storage with no SD expansion option..its a Fail
Only 512 MB RAM while the rest of the honeycomb tabs have 1GB its a Disaster
With Price of $489 for a Fat, Ugly, undesirable style, Stupid Physical Button & with a brand Name Acer its almost Dead.
like Steve jobs said ….DOA
I am now decided to buy the thinnest tablet from thosibha 🙂
