Cracking Open the Acer Iconia Tab A500: Box

As of this writing, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 is available in 16GB ($449.99) and 32GB ($499.99) versions.

The current versions only support Wi-Fi connectivity, but there is speculation that Acer will release a 3G version on AT&T (the A501) in mid-2011.

As with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, there's already a spot on the A500's motherboard for a 3G card.
