Acer's smaller Iconia Tab A100 Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet has been priced and dated courtesy of Amazon UK, with the 7-inch slate expected to ship from April 20. Priced at a competitive £299.99 ($485), the A100 has a 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, 8GB of internal storage and a Tegra 2 processor paired with 512MB of RAM.

We grabbed some hands-on time with the Iconia Tab A100 back at MWC 2011, when it was still running Froyo rather than Honeycomb, and came away tentatively impressed. Acer's design is certainly compact, and there are twin cameras – a 5MP auto-focus camera on the back side, and a 2MP front-facing camera on the front – along with WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 and an HDMI port. There's no mention of 3G in the Amazon product page, only the generic "wireless", which leads us to assume that this is WiFi-only.

Even so, £300 is a pretty good deal. The WiFi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab is the same price, though is only running Froyo, while Dell's Streak 7 packs 3G for the same money but also lacks Honeycomb and makes do with a mere WVGA display.
