Wired: First Look – Acer Iconia Tab A500 Tablet PC

Wired magazine shows a sneak peak at Acer’s new tablet PC. It runs Android Honeycomb on a dual-core processor, and it will be priced at $450.

“Ever since Google’s tablet-optimized version of its Android OS debuted on the Xoom in February, manufacturers have been scrambling to bring their tablets to market. Next up on the list is Acer’s offering, the Iconia Tab A500.

If you haven’t used Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) before — and unless you own a Xoom, odds are you probably haven’t — it takes a bit of getting used to. Eliminating the four buttons that anchored so many Android phone faces means retraining yourself to handle a new interface. Instead of physical buttons, the system bar that lines the bottom of the screen holds three “soft” navigation buttons.”
