iPad Killer Cometh

If you’re in the market for a new tablet PC and prefer the Android operating system over Apple’s iOS you may be in luck. The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is the first tablet to run Android that really looks like formidable competition to the iPad 2. Its 10.1″ screen is .4″ larger than the iPad 2 and the base model offers the same 16GB of internal memory. The Iconia Tab A500 however will have a micro SD card slot which can handle an additional 32GB. It also matches the iPad 2 with cameras on both the front and back of the unit. Despite highly similar features and some aspects which Acer has the upper hand, the Iconia Tab A500 is going to retail for $449.99, $50 cheaper than the 16GB iPad 2. Best Buy has exclusive rights to selling the new tablet and pre-orders can be placed at their website, it hits stores along with a plethora of accessories on April 24th.
