The 7-inch Acer Iconia Tab A100 tablet has been released, finally.

After being put off for months the first 7-inch Android Honeycomb tablet has hit the market. The Acer Iconia Tab A100 has joined the 10-inch Iconia Tab A500 and W500 tablets in Europe.

Acer Europe has announced the release of the Android 3.2 Honeycomb powered Acer Iconia Tab A100 for Europe. In their release the Acer announces “The wait is over!” and the tablet maker also confirms that the A100 started to hit store shelves.

The A100 was initially announced as the first 7-inch Android Honeycomb tablet but the launch delay put the A100 at risk of losing that title. The folks at ViewSonic and Huawei both have 7-inch Android Honeycomb tablets coming soon that could have easily launched ahead of the A100 that Acer had put off.

Features wise the specifications for the A100 have stayed in-tact from when Acer first unveiled this tablet in March at CTIA 2011, except the tablet now rocks Android 3.2 Honeycomb instead of the 3.0 it was introduced with. That means the A100 comes equipped with a 7-inch 1024-by-600 capacitive multi-touch LCD, the 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core chip, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of flash memory storage built-in, Micro HDMI, micro USB 2.0, Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth, a 2MP front and 5MP rear camera.

The Acer Iconia Tab A100 should hit your wallet for about €349 in Europe with those features just listed. If you don’t like the Blue back the A100 offers Acer will be launching a Red model in October.
