Acer Iconia Tab A100 and A101 up for pre-order in UK, ships May 14

Back in April the Acer Iconia Tab A100 hit Amazon UK for pre-order with a ship date pegged by the pre-order page as April 20. April 20 came and went with apparently no launch of the tablets. The Acer Iconia A100 and its twin the A101 are now both on pre-order again at Amazon in the UK with a different launch date. Whether this launch date sticks remains to be seen. According to the ad, the new launch date is only nine days away.

The A100 will ship out on May 14 as will its 3G modem packing brother the A101. The price of the A101 is high at £399 or about $661 in the USD and the A100 is a bit cheaper at £299 working out to a $165 discount over the 3G version. Other than the 3G modem in the A101, the two are hardware clones, and both have a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. Both of these tablets run Android 3.0 as well.

Other features include a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera. The tablets have 8GB of internal storage and a micro SD card slot that will work with cards up to 32GB in capacity. Both have 802.11b/g/n WiFi and a mini HDMI output. The processor inside the tablet is the NVIDIA Tegra 250 dual-core Cortex A9.
