Yet another Android tablet is making its way to Canadian soil soon. This time Acer is jumping into the game with their Honeycomb 3.0 tablet called the Acer Iconia. Future Shop says this has an estimated release date of May 13th and the retail price falls right in line with all the other tablets at $499.99.
The specs are impressive and comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display (resolution of 1280 x 800), NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile dual-core processor, 5 megapixel camera on the back with a 2 megapixel front facing camera, 3.5 mm headset jack, 8-hours of battery life, Wi-Fi, micro-HDMI out and weighs in at 765 grams (to compare the Motorola XOOM weighs 730 grams and that’s a bit hefty).
This just might be the second Honeycomb tablet in Canada… unless the LG G-Slate comes before this. Future Shop has put the Iconia up for pre-order already and you can check it out here.
