The fact that the Acer tablet has been delayed is not new news. we have already brought you details on the UK release of the Iconia Tab A100 being pushed back, and further delay has people asking what the problem is. Today’s news provides a suggestion as to one reason why the delay is occurring.
The company has already said not to expect the tablet until the second half of this year, as opposed to this month which was the original plan. According to the article at DigiTimes this comes down to compatibility issues that the 7” device is having with the Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS.
Apparently a lot of the Honeycomb specific apps, which are rare in the Android Market at the moment anyway are not playing well with the 7” display the tablet has. Acer therefore is holding back the slates until these issues are addressed.
A likely release date is expected around August or September this year, other than that we will have to wait and see. In the meantime check out the full article over at DigiTimes by clicking the link above where you will find more about the delays Acer are dealing with.
