Acer’s 7″ tablet that will run on the tablet-centric operating system from Google, Android 3.0 Honeycomb, has been delayed after missing its original April launch date, followed by a subsequent May release. It seems that the Acer Iconia Tab A100’s launch date has been pushed back even further – to the second half of the year, in fact. This will certainly go some way in deflating all the anticipation that has built up over the months for fans of Acer, and bear in mind that this delay does not mean the tablet will be cancelled as Acer has vehemently denied such rumors. According to an Acer UK representative, “The A100 has not been cancelled but the launch is postponed to the second half of the year.”
This is a straight U-turn compared to a comment made by the Polish branch of Acer to an online site, who claims that the A100 has been discontinued. Who are we to place our faith in now? We would do well to wait for an official announcement from the head honcho at Acer International, or could it be because the Acer Iconia Tab A100 will arrive at the UK and not mainland Europe instead.
