Acer Iconia A200 is 10.1-inches of tablet goodness for $330

Want an inexpensive tablet that doesn't compromise on screen size? You'll want Acer Iconia Tab A200 — a 10.1-inch tablet that runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb (to be upgraded to 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) and has a beefy dual-core processor.

Ten-inch tablets usually cost in the $400 and up range. The Acer Iconia Tab A200 is $330 and it arrives in ten days on Jan. 15.

It's got an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, the aforementioned 10.1-inch 1280x800 display, eight hour battery, a USB 2.0 port, MicroSD card slot, and micro USB port and it only weighs 1.5 pounds.

What about cameras? You only get one — a 2-megapixel front camera. There is no rear camera.

And storage? For $330, you get 8GB (expandable with the MicroSD slot) and for an additional $20, you can bump that 8GB of internal up to 16GB.

As stated, it's a Honeycomb tablet, but it'll be upgraded for free to 4.0 ICS in mid-February.

On paper, it looks like a fairly decent tablet, assuming you're not expecting it to be a video editing powerhouse. For Web browsing, watching videos and looking a photos, it should more than do the trick.

Samsung and Apple better watch out. An affordable 10-inch tablet is here to make the Galaxy Tab and iPad look super overpriced.
