Acer’s 10.1-inch, Android Honeycomb Iconia Tab A500 Lands at Best Buy for $449

Scoot over Motorola XOOM and make room on the display shelf for Acer’s new Iconia Tab A500. Like the XOOM the Iconia Tab is powered by a dual-core 1Ghz Tegra 2 processor, offers a 10.1-inch display (16:10, 1280×800), and runs Android Honeycomb. In fact, it weighs just about the same (1.7lbs) and is just as thick (.5″). I guess the only reason why one would buy the Iconia Tab over the XOOM would be for the price (16GB model is only $449 at Best Buy) and its looks (brushed silver). Really, isn’t that what differentiates all these new Honeycomb tablets coming out — being that they all share the same baseline specs?
