This is probably the best deal I've seen thus far on any Honeycomb tablet: starting this Sunday, July 17th, you'll be able to pick up the Acer Iconia Tab A500 from Target for $400 and get a $50 Target gift card to go along with it, effectively making the price $350. The Iconia A500 sports the standard specs that we've become accustomed to seeing out of Honeycomb tablets:

  • 10.1 Inch 1280x800 display
  • 1Ghz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB storage, MicroSD card slot
  • 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras
  • USB and microHDMI ports
  • Android 3.1

Update: The deal is live - check it out in the Target weekly ad online!


Update: Here's the ad itself:


If you've been waiting for the opportune moment to jump on a Honeycomb tablet, it doesn't get much better than this. If you plan on taking advantage of this deal, you better hit the store early, though, because once they're sold out, that's it!

    Anyone have an idea when any tablet with the Tegra 3 processors are coming out? I keep hearing sometime in the fall but I'm really itching to pick up a tablet and I dont want to wait another 4 months.

      An October release would not surprise me.

  • Tablet Product Manager

    Tegra 3 systems may hit the market late in Q4 from one or two vendors. Most vendors will likely introduce Tegra 3 products in Q1/Q2 ,2012

    Your specs say 3.1 while the ad (and everything else I've seen) says Android 3.0.

    Wow, that's a great deal for a notebook!

    I've been debating on whether to pick up a tablet. This would be a good deal. But if I have an Android phone, what would a tablet bring me that I don't have?

  • Franz

    The $249 - $50 (Gift Card) = $199 on the notebook is a better deal lol...

    Just bought that model on sale in Canada for $399.00. I am amazed with what I can do with it. Although I think I lost it to my girlfriend. So buy 2 lol
