Acer ICONIA TAB A100 coming in September

Acer ICONIA TAB A100 coming in SeptemberAcer's ICONIA TAB A500 may not be the only tablet Acer has to offer for long, The ICONIA TAB A100 with a smaller frame and a 7 inch display is said to launch some time in September according to Acer Germany. Other than the 7 inch display size compared to the 10 inch display on the A500, the A100 shares the NVidia Tegra 2 processor but will have 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage.

Walmart has already added the upcoming device to their systems, and set it's price at $349. The device was initially expected in Spring, but was delayed to be released during the second half of the year with no reasons given for it's delay.

Android 3.0 initially did not come with support for smaller displays. Due to this restriction, 7 inch tablets were restricted to run Android 2x. However with Android 3.2 extending it's support to smaller display sizes there is a chance that the reason for the delay could be in favor of an updated version of Android on the A100. Android 3.2 will bring an updated Movie Studio along with the Movies and Music apps. The device performance is also said to improve in this version of Android.

Android 3.2 will be the last version before Android Ice Cream Sandwich, which promises to merge the smartphone and tablet experience.
