Acer America has just announced that the Acer Iconia Tab A200 will go on sale in the US on January 15th. The Android 3.2 slate features a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 1280 x 800 10.1-inch display, and 8 GB and 16 GB storage options. Tablet with 8 GB of storage will retail at $329.99, while the 16 GB variant is priced at $349.99. Tablet sports 2MP front-facing camera, microSD slot for expanded storage, and a full-sized USB 2.0 port. For those obsessed with the latest and greatest, an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade is scheduled for delivery in February.

It’s quite unclear how this new installment from Acer to its Iconia lineup will fare against the very popular ASUS Eee Pad Transformer (non-Prime, a TF101 model. Similarly specced slate from ASUS adds a rear 5 megapixel camera and its quite successful “transformer” docking keyboard, but even without keyboard ASUS slate can be had for $360…$380 if you care to shop around.

So I doubt that a price difference between Acer’s $349.99 (or even $329.99 for a model with lesser storage) and ASUS first Transformer may turn the chances to win customers in Acer’s favor. All in all, “legacy” Tegra 2 tablets are on their way out and may soon show in sub-$300 price category. Then, releasing a tablet with Android 3.2 this late in January is not a very good sign when every tablet device worth north of $300 is expected to run Ice Cream Sandwich.

Acer has also a history of releasing its Iconias with locked bootloaders, and nobody knows what this A200 Tab would come out with on January 15th. ASUS, in its turn, seems to listen to their customers and promises Ice Cream Sandwich and bootloader unlocking tool at least for its flagship Transformer Prime slate.
