The Acer Iconia Tab A200 is a Honeycomb tablet with a 10.1-inch screen and a dual-core Tegra 2 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. It features a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi sharing through Acer's DLNA-compatible 'clear.fi', and is quoted for 8 hours of use.

Description

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 has been used to show off NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor, but more importantly is an example of what can happen when Acer decides to overachive: a solidly built tablet at a reasonable price.

Responding to the German sales ban on Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices during litigation with Apple, Samsung released the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that adds a silver framing along the front. It otherwise appears to be the same 10.1 as before, plus the ability to be sold in stores.

The Xoom 2 is Motorola's successor to the Xoom. It features a 10.1 inch screen, a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, and a built in IR blaster, all while increasing battery life.
