We might finally have a release date for the Acer Iconia Tab A100. Over at Engadget they’re reporting that official Acer retailers haveĀ receivedĀ e-mails that the A100 will launch in early August.

Previously the tablet had been delayed but better it comes late than never at all. Especially so if the price is $300 starting out for an A100, at that price the A100 will be the cheapest Android Honeycomb tablet yet.

The A100′s features have been pretty consistent even through the delays and Engadget isn’t reporting any major changes. However I do believe the A100 will launch with Android 3.2 Honeycomb because it’s the only version of Honeycomb that’s better optimized for tablets with smaller screens. Remember this 7-inch tablet will feature a 1024-by-600 pixels resolution.

Other features coming with the tablet include a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processing chip, 512MB of RAM, capacitive multi-touch support, 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras, micro USB 2.0, micro HDMI, Wi-Fi n and Bluetooth 2.1, and built-in flash memory storage with expansion through a microSD slot. The tablet will be available in Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi+3G as well, the $300 price quoted above is most likely for an 8GB Wi-Fi only model.

If you’ve forgotten what the A100 is like check out this hands-on video from an Acer event earlier this month, video is recorded by YouTube user nDeviltv:
