Remember Acer's quad-core tablet that managed to beat out ASUS' Transformer Prime by a pretty wide price difference? It's available from Amazon for an easier-on-the-wallet $450 right now. If you're holding out for the silver version, you can still place a pre-order with Amazon here. In case you need a refresher, here are the specs:

  • 10.1-inch 1,280x800 display
  • Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage with microSD Card slot
  • 5MP Rear shooter, 1MP front-facing camera
  • 9,800mAh battery for 12 hours of continuous video playback
  • Android 4.0 with Acer Ring


The Olympics-branded tablet is an attractive choice for those who are looking for a budget tablet that doesn't strip away features that the bigger players share. At $450, it still clocks in cheaper than most of ASUS or Samsung's higher-end tablets, and the Tegra 3 inside means it should pack some serious processing power.

If you want in on this action, head over to Amazon to either buy the black version, or pre-order the silver version.

    Acer seems to be making smart moves lately with their tablets. 32GB AND microSD for $450? Not bad at all.

    It beat out Transformer Prime by a pretty wide price difference?  $49 is a pretty wide price difference?  Wow... That would really make the decision for me! LOL

    Doesn't compare favorably to the Asus TF300, though.


    The ASUS Transformer Pad 300 has the same specs, but better camera and is priced at 399.
