Acer’s new A200 $349 tablet released, Ice Cream Sandwich in 2012

Right before Christmas, Acer has decided to unleash another tablet on Australians, with the 10.1 inch A200 hitting stores now, with a note that the new Android 4.0 operating system will be coming in January.

The latest tablet to join Acer’s staple of devices, the A200 features the Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor that’s been making its way into a lot of tablets this year, as well as a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, full-size USB port, microSD slot, and either 8GB or 16GB of storage built-in.

From today, we’ll see the A200 run with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, but in January 2012, Acer plans on introducing Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s not yet know if the updated operating system will make its way across Acer’s other tablets, but given the similar hardware underneath, we’re hopeful.

For now, interested customers can grab the 10.1 inch Acer A200 from $349 RRP, but only from Harvey Norman as it’s currently exclusive.
