These were first announced last November and were supposed to be here in February.

Presumably Honeycomb was the reason for delay but don't know for sure.

Is this the same as their Eee Pad Transformer Tablet that's set too launch in April? It too has a 10.1" screen and Honeycomb but 1GB of RAM. Supposedly the Eee Pad will be priced at $400 according to Best Buy USA.

Edit. Whoops It looks like I confused Acer with Asus.

Acer also plans to release the w500 at the same time. Windows on a tablet for about the same price.

I can't seem to find very much information regarding any type of customization that Acer is planning for either the a500 or w500.

April 8th is the announced release date for the UK and Europe.
