Acer is certainly having an optimistic outlook for their upcoming Iconia tablet range, where part suppliers for Acer have claimed that it was extremely probably for the Taiwanese company to have shipped nearly a million of the Iconia tablets during spring, and demand is such that Acer failed to keep up with requests from the April launch through May. In April alone, around 300,000 tablets were shipped, where the bulk of those (some say 70%) comprised of 10″ tablets like the A500 and the Windows-powered W500. No idea on whether the rest were the Iconia smartphone and tablet hybrid though.
This might have been the reason as to why Acer decided to postpone the launch of their 7″ tablet known as the Iconia Tab A100. If the Iconia Tab A500 actually moved a cool million units, it would by far and large make it the most successful Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet to date, but since the market is still considered to be in its infancy, we will wait for a year or so to see how things develop as the dust settles among the competition.
Are you one of those who are looking forward to the Iconia Tab A100, and have already budgeted for it?
