Acer Android tablets priced

Pre-orders taken too

Acer's 7in Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet, the Iconia A100, will be out later this month for 300 quid.

So says Amazon.co.uk, which says that those 300 notes will buy you 8GB of storage, a 1024 x 600 display, Bluetooth and 2.4GHz 802.11n.

The online retailer also lists an A100 at £400, but the listed specification is identical to that of the £300.

The models are different - their product codes are not the same: XE.H6REN.006 and XE.H6TEN.006. We believe the more expensive of the two - the XE.H6TEN.006 - has the 3G connectivity absent from the cheaper one.

For comparison, £300 will also get you a 7in Samsung Galaxy Tab which likewise doesn't have 3G on board and comes with Android 2.2 Froyo, not Honeycomb. But it does have 16GB of storage.

Both A100s go on sale on 20 April, Amazon says. ®
