Just in time for the holidays, Acer has announced its Iconia Tab A200 tablet powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2 processors. The 10.1-inch tablet is a more affordable sibling to the A500, although the specifications are in fact quite similar.

The Iconia Tab A200 will ship with Android 3.2 initially, although Acer is expecting to start shipping Android 4.0 in January as well as providing an update for those that got the tablet with Android 3.2. The Tegra 2 processor is a standard 1GHz dual core model and it has been paired up with 1GB of RAM and eight or 16GB of eMMC memory for storage.

Other features include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, GPS, a 2Megapixel front camera, a micro SD card slot, a micro USB port and a USB port for USB OTG, a headphone jack, a G-sensor and a gyrometer. The battery is said to be good for about 8h of usage, the same as the A500. The A200 measures 260x175x12.4mm and weighs in at 720g. We're not entirely sure how much more affordable it'll be compared to the A500, as Acer didn't provide any pricing.
