Summary: Acer's latest tablet the Iconia Tab A200 gets official, via an announcement from Netbook News. It is equipped with an Nvidia 1GHz Tegra 2 processor, with 1GB RAM and a 10.1-inch display, with 1280 x 800 resolution
Conclusion: The Iconia Tab A200 feels like a fix for an old tablet more than it feels like something new. Acer has a quad-core A510 tablet coming soon and a high-resolution design coming after that, which makes the A200 its new budget design. It runs Android 4.0, but mostly feels like one of last year’s tablets – a bit heavier and bulkier than what we’re now seeing from most manufacturers.
Pros: Great improvement over Acer's A500, Decent front-facing camera, Full-size USB port, microSD support, Runs Android 4.0, Nice Acer Android add-ons
Cons: No rear camera, Heavier and fatter than the iPad 3, Screen can't compare to newer models, Android tablet apps still lag behind Apple, 10.1 inches is a bit too big
Summary: The Acer Iconia Tab A200 isn't designed to be cutting edge. It's a tablet that hits the sweet spot in terms of price and features. For $349, consumers get solid performance, a full USB 2.0 port and long battery life. We also like the Acer Ring interface and the useful lock-screen shortcuts.
Pros: Helpful Acer Ring interface, Solid performance and graphics, Long battery life, Nice soft-touch back, Relatively inexpensive, Full-size USB 2.0 port
Cons: Heavier than other 10.1-inch tablets, No rear-facing camera, Annoying port cover
Excerpt: The Acer Iconia Tab A200 is a 10-inch tablet computer that comes with the Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system pre-installed. That, along with its many good hardware features, should be enough to make it an attractive option. But Acer is kind enough to provide A200 owners with free updates to a later version of Android, which is version 4.0 a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich. And that makes it even better.
Acer Iconia Tab A200 review: Acer aims to compete on price with the $349 Iconia Tab A200, a 10.1 Android tablet

Summary: Don't let the Acer Iconia Tab A200's budget price fool you. For less than it's $350 asking price you'll get an Android tablet that does what most other Android tablets will. The dull screen and relatively small hard drive are downsides, but considering the price tag, these are both faults we can live with.
Pros: Competitive price, Clean and elegant design, Ring interface a nice touch
Cons: Only 8GB storage, Screen has poor viewing angles, No 3G connectivity option
