Acer will not be releasing its Iconia A100 tablet as originally thought, which means those who have been holding out for a May/June release will have to be more patient and wait for an August/September release instead. This 7″ tablet will run on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, and the reason behind this delay is because Google still needs more time in order to resolve additional issues surrounding the operating system. Perhaps this is due to Android 3.0 being specifically written for 10″ displays, hence leaving Acer out in the cold with their 7″ tablet.
Apart from that, Acer will also hold off its 5″ smartphone’s release, known as the Iconia Smart, pushing the release date from May all the way back to July because the devastating earthquake in Japan this March left Acer high and dry when it comes to the supply of key components for said smartphone. Ah well, patience had always been touted to be a virtue, so here’s a chance to practice it.
