Acer Iconia Tab A100 hit by delays

Won't reach UK until later this year

Acer has delayed its Iconia Tab A100 tablet until later this year, after missing the intended shipping date of 14 May.

An eagle-eyed Polish site spotted that Acer had removed the 7-inch tablet from its website, and was subsequently told that the tablet has been cancelled.

But Acer UK insists that this is not the case; the tablet has simply been pushed back to the 'second half of the year'.

Marvelously vague

That's not a massively helpful timescale, though; it could mean a launch any time from the end of next month all the way through to Christmas.

The delay comes as a disappointment to anyone looking for a Honeycomb tablet on a shoestring; with a UK price of £299.99, the dual-core Iconia Tab A100 would have been the cheapest Honeycomb slate around.

We'll keep you posted on an updated release date; in the meantime, remind yourself of what you're missing out on with our hands on Acer Iconia Tab A100 review.
