We can safely say that tablets have finally become affordable consumer electronics devices, and we have Acer to thank for that.
Sure, we aren't looking at one of the fabled $199 NVIDIA Kai slates here, but having to pay $450 for Tegra 3 and a 10-inch Full HD LCD is actually quite a good deal. Shipments aren't being carried out yet, but pre-orders should become possible shortly, assuming online stores haven't already added the page. The tablet is called Iconia Tab A700 and, in addition to an LCD resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and NVIDIA's Tegra 3 platform, boasts 32 GB of NAND Flash storage, an HDMI output and 5.1-channel audio with Dolby Mobile 3+ technology.
Pre-orders in Europe have been possible since Early May. The price tag is 479 Euro instead of the $359 implied by exchange rates. The first sightings of the product date even further back. We actually had some hands-on experience with it at CES 2012, in January, 2012.
