Acer’s latest tablet effort running Google’s Android operating system, the Iconia Tab, has been priced just a penny shy of £300 for the Wi-Fi only model.

Freshly listed on Amazon, Iconia packs a seven-inch touchscreen panel just like the original Samsung Galaxy Tab, but ups the ante with a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, a five-megapixel rear-mounted camera, a two-megapixel front-facing webcam, and of course, Honeycomb rather than the smartphone oriented Gingerbread version of Google's OS. Better yet, for all that it still costs a £100 less than the Galaxy Tab, although it does compromise on internal storage space, which is halved to just 8GB.

Nevertheless, with an entry price well below the iPad 2 and a range of costly Android heavy-hitters due to arrive to market this year, the Iconia Tab promises to be a rather bargain-priced proposition, even as an e-reader or portable entertainment device.

And for those looking to spend a bit more on a larger screen, a 10.1-inch version, is also available for £449 and £529 for the Wi-Fi-only and 3G enabled versions respectively.

The Iconia is available to order right now on Amazon. Stay tuned for contract options for the 3G models to be announced imminently.
