Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet hits FCC: US release date imminent

By Tina Chubb - Jun 4, 2011

Just last week we told you that the launch of the much-anticipated Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet had unfortunately been pushed back until August / September time. The delay was reportedly down to compatibility issues that the A100 tablet was having with the Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system.

We have a bit of good news for you now however, as an article over at wirelessgoodness.com reports that the Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet has recently hit the FCC, which of course means that the US release date is imminent. The A100 tablet has already launched in Europe, but on a limited basis.

Acer’s 10.1-inch Iconia Tab A500 tablet is already available to purchase in stores, and now it looks like it will be soon be joined by its smaller brother, the Acer Iconia Tab A100. The Android Honeycomb-based device is powered by a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and comes with 512MB of RAM.

The A100 tablet also comes with a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and a 5-megapixel camera round the back and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Although the A100 only comes with 8GB of internal storage, it can be expanded via the microSD card slot.
