Last week we got a picture of what looks to be a new Android tablet from Acer, called the Iconia Tab A200, courtesy of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. Now with a new week comes a new leak (thanks to the FCC), but there still isn't much to go on. All we can tell for sure from the reports is that the tablet, should it ever be released, will have 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a camera. None of that is terribly exciting — what is interesting is that we can now make an educated guess on the size of the A200's screen. A diagram (above) from shows that the device will be 29.6cm (about 11.65 inches) across, suggesting that its screen will be in the 10-inch range. We put our math skills to the test against another diagram (below), and found that the tablet will be 7 to 8mm thick. It's not clear how the A200 will slot into Acer's tablet lineup — it already has 7.1-inch and 10-inch Honeycomb tablets (the A100 and A500, respectively). We'll keep an eye out to see if this tablet takes any more steps towards release, but in the meantime check out the A200's rumored specs compared with the A100 and A500 in our product database.
