Over the past few weeks and months the price of the Acer Iconia A500 has been steadily dropping. It is now clear that it was to make way for the 4G version of the tablet from AT&T.

Announced in late March by AT&T for a Q2 release, it looks like they have finally got their act together and are now featuring the device on Amazon.com on pre-order for $499.99.


The unreleased 4G HSPA+ tablet will be running Android Honeycomb and will feature a 1Ghz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor with integrated graphics, 10.1" WXGA display (1280x800), 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, 802.11b/g/n wireless, and a 5MP rear facing camera and 2MP front-facing camera.

    Hi everyone out there.. I have A501 (with 3G ) but its really cumbersome carrying a Tablet and a Cell phone ( nearly equivalent to Tablet). I would request if anyone can help to decipher the secret by allowing to make calls through the tablet. Please I am not referring to any apps calls. Plain mobile calls from tablet.

    Thank you in advance.
